Vestas has won its fourth order from the latest Polish auction round for a total order intake of more than 350 MW for the two wind projects Dobrowo and Retowo.
This 36 MW wind project consists of ten V126-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimized Mode combined with site-specific towers and a 20-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service contract, offering competitive levelised cost of energy.
The project is located in the northwest of Poland and was developed by ENERTRAG.
“ENERTRAG has persistently pursued its vision to realise wind farm projects in Poland. Our team has been working for many years on these projects and we are very happy that our strong belief in the Polish market is paying off now. With Vestas, we believe we have found the right partner with the best technology for the Dobrowo and Retowo sites and are very optimistic that the turbines will be up and running as expected next year. We’re excited to continue our long-lasting business relationship with Vestas and to extend it in another country.”Bastian Altrichter, head of procurement in ENERTRAG.
“We are proud to continue our valued partnership with ENERTRAG on the Dobrowo-Retowo project in Poland. Attesting to the increasing competitiveness of wind energy, this project underlines Vestas’ capability to deliver competitive wind energy solutions and services that enable our customers to build winning bids in auctions.”Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Northern & Central Europe.
The wind project will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution which will reduce the downtime of turbines and thus optimize energy output. The contract also covers the supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2021 and commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2021.
