Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has secured a 42MW wind turbine supply contract from Eko Energija in Croatia, and a service and maintenance renewal contract from We Energies for turbines with a total capacity of around 309MW in Wisconsin, US.
The company will deliver 14 units of V90-3.0MW turbines for the Zelengrad wind power plant in Obrovac, Croatia, under the supply contract with Eko Energija.
Vestas noted that the delivery of the first turbine is slated for the first quarter of 2014 and the wind power plant will become operational in the second quarter of 2014.
The deal also includes the supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines, along with a VestasOnline Business SCADA system as well as a seven-year full-scope service agreement.
Commenting on the supply order, Vestas Central Europe president Thomas Richterich said that the deal is a major milestone for the company’s business in Croatia’s wind power sector.
The Zelengrad wind power plant will generate around 110,000MWh of electricity annually, by lowering 35,000 tons of CO2 emissions.
Under the contract with We Energies, Vestas will provide maintenance services at a wind farm featuring two V47-660 kW in Byron; the Blue Sky Green Field project in northeast Fond du Lac County with 88 V82-1.65MW turbines; and Glacier Hills Wind Park consisting of 90 V90-1.8MW turbines near the towns of Randolph and Scott in Columbia County.
The three wind power facilities generate clean electricity that is enough to power around 80,000 households in Wisconsin.
In addition, the service contract includes Vestas’ Active Output Management 4000 maintenance program and the VestasOnline surveillance system to remotely control and monitor the turbines.
