Vestas trade event

Vestas announced its 21 MW contract from wpd AG in Taiwan that includes five V117-4.2 MW turbines with 91.5m towers in two wind projects.

The order includes a service agreement for the wind farms, to ensure optimized performance and long-term business case certainty for the customer.

“We would like to thank wpd for entrusting Vestas with these projects and strengthening our strategic collaboration at local market. Onshore wind is the fastest way to bring new renewable generation capacity online in Taiwan, but more governmental support is needed to accelerate the build out,” said Alex Robertson, General Manager of Vestas Taiwan.

Vestas’ onshore installed volume in Taiwan will exceed more than 350 MW of which 130 MW is with wpd.

Vestas said deliveries are expected to begin at the third quarter of 2023, while commissioning will be in the fourth quarter.
