Vestas has secured a contract from European Energy to supply wind turbines for a 33MW project in Denmark.


Under the contract, Vestas will provide ten of its V117-3.3MW turbines for the Ulvemosen project in Varde, Denmark.

The contract also includes a 15-year active output management (AOM) 4000 service agreement.

Vestas said that delivery and installation of the turbines is expected to be completed by the end of 2014.

The Ulvemosen project will be financed by Danish pension fund Sampension.

European Energy will construct and operate the wind farm on behalf of Denmark’s pension fund.

European Energy CEO Knud Erik Andersen said, "We value the strong partnership with Vestas, including its high product quality and reliability and the company’s track record for on-time installations.

"We look forward to getting the V117’s for Ulvemosen up and running later this year."

Vestas Northern Europe president Klaus Steen Mortensen said, "Vestas is extremely pleased that European Energy has again chosen to partner with us and to further build up wind energy in Denmark.

"Denmark is an important and growing market for Vestas, and this project will help keep our production and construction teams busy."
