Vestas has won a 61 MW order with customer wpd for the two wind projects Chuangwei and Leadway in Taiwan.

Vestas said it will supply, transport, install and commission 17 V117-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode that will feature Taiwan’s largest onshore rotors to optimise energy production in the sites’ medium to high wind conditions.

The order is the first deal confirmed under a strategic frame agreement signed between Vestas and wpd for over 400 MW of onshore wind projects in Taiwan. Commercial operations at both Chuangwei and Leadway are expected to commence in the last quarter of 2020.

“Taiwan is an important market to us in Asia Pacific and I am excited to see our position strengthening here, having closed more than 100 MW this year,” said Clive Turton, president of Vestas Asia Pacific.

The order includes a 15-year Active Output Management 4000 service agreement, designed to maximise uptime and ensure optimised performance for both sites.
