In Taiwan, Vestas announced that it is expanding its partnership with wpd, which is placing an order for five offshore wind turbines for two projects.
A confirmed partnership
In Taiwan, Vestas announced that it had received an order for five wind turbines for a total of 21MW. The order includes five V117-4.2 MW wind turbines. In addition, each wind turbine will have a tower height of 91.5 meters.
In addition, the order includes a long-term service contract for Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000). The long-term service contract applies to the two wind farms in Taiwan. The objective is to guarantee optimized performance and long-term profitability analysis for the customer.
Alex Robertson, Managing Director of Vestas Taiwan, says:
“We would like to thank wpd for entrusting Vestas with these projects and strengthening our strategic collaboration in the local market. Onshore wind is the fastest way to bring new renewable energy capacity online in Taiwan.”
In addition, Vestas says additional government support is needed to speed up construction. In addition, deliveries are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2023.
The wind farms will be commissioned in the fourth quarter of the same year. With this order, Vestas’ total volume of onshore installations in Taiwan will exceed 350MW. Of this power, 130MW comes from the collaboration between Vestas and wpd.
