Vestas V155-3.3 MW wind turbine

Vestas announced it has secured a new contract for the second phase of the DTEK Tiligul project, from DTEK Renewables.

This order, which covers the remaining 372 MW of the win power project, being developed as the second phase of the complex, adds to the 126 MW order which Vestas received in March 2021 for the first phase.

In total, the 500 MW DTEK Tiligul project is the largest order received by Vestas in Eastern Europe, and comprises the first EnVentus project in Ukraine. Full park commissioning is planned for the end of the third quarter of 2022.

Vestas will provide service for both phases of the DTEK Tiligul project through a long-term 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, providing power performance certainty and Vestas’ service expertise throughout the lifetime of the project.

Vestas will be supplying 62 V162-6.0 MW turbines with a hub height of 125 metres for the second phase of the project.

“Securing the 372 MW in the second phase of the Tiligul project is an important step for Vestas to take in applying our EnVentus platform in Ukraine,” said Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe.

Maris Kunickis, CEO of DTEK Renewables, said: “As part of New Strategy 2030, DTEK has committed to transform the company into a greener, more efficient and technological business. Construction of the new Tiligulska wind farm will become a significant DTEK Group contribution to decarbonisation of the Ukrainian economy and Europe as well.”
