Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has secured a 94MW wind turbine supply contract from Aurora Wind Power - a joint venture between GDF SUEZ, Investec and Kagiso Investment, in South Africa.
As per the agreed terms, the company will supply 47 units of V90-2.0 MW wind turbines for the West Coast One wind power project, in Western Cape.
The deal includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, civil and electrical works, a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution as well as a 15-year full-scope service agreement.
Commenting on the deal, Vestas Southern Africa Country Sales manager Phylip Leferink said the agreement bolsters the company’s position in the South African wind power sector, where it has won 36% of the megawatts in the first two auctions.
"We look forward to building on this success and further developing, together with our long-standing and global partner GDF SUEZ, exciting wind opportunities in the country," added Leferink.
The delivery of the turbines will commence in the third quarter of 2014, and the wind power plant is anticipated to become operational by May 2015.
