Vestas receives 27 MW order in Spain
Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for a 27 MW wind energy project to be located in Burgos, northern Spain. The order comprises supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines and a five-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service agreement, a full-scope service package to maximise uptime and performance. Turbine delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of 2016, whilst commissioning is expected for the fourth quarter of 2016.
With a target of generating 20 percent of its electricity needs from wind by 2020, Spain has traditionally been a strong advocate for wind energy, but has seen low activity in recent years. Marco Graziano, President of Vestas Mediterranean, says, "This new project is good news for Spain as it moves towards its 20 percent target and helps electricity prices go further down. It is also good news for the energy sector as it once again proves how competitive wind energy is and that it can provide a strong business case where the wind allows”.
Vestas has played a key role in developing the wind energy industry in Spain since it installed its first wind turbine in the country in 1990. Vestas has installed 128 wind farms in Spain, corresponding to more than 4 GW of the country’s total wind installed capacity, currently at 23 GW.*)
