Denmark-based wind turbine manufacturer Vestas is expanding its multi-brand fleet in Europe with a service agreement for turbines at the 10MW Orjak wind farm in northern Croatia.

The contract was awarded by VJETROELEKTRANA ORJAK, a daughter company of global renewable energy developer BayWa r.e’s subsidiary ECOwind Handels-und Wartungs.

ECOwind Handels-und Wartungs managing director Johann Janker said: “We have established a strong partnership with Vestas on multiple projects and are pleased to see this continue with Orjak.

“The 10 MW project benefits from a long-term feed-in tariff and with Vestas now in place as service provider, it will ensure Orjak’s sustained operation at peak efficiency.”

With over 8GW of non-Vestas turbines which are currently under service across the globe, Vestas is one of the wind industry’s largest multi-brand service providers.

The company said that it multibrand expertise and global footprint is being used to provide full scope service across all major Senvion platforms that include the MM82-2.05MW, MM92-2.05, 3.XM EBC and 3.XM NES platforms.

“Globally servicing more than 8 GW non-Vestas turbines across the largest turbine brands, I am confident that trusting us means reaping the benefits of our experience, in-depth knowledge and technical expertise, regardless of turbine make and mark.”

Recently, the wind turbine manufacturer has received a 166MW turbine supply order for two projects awarded in Polish wind-solar-energy auction in December 2019.
