Vestas has won a 76 MW order for Chitose Wind Farm and Noheji Mutsuwan Wind Farm in the Aomori prefecture of Japan.

Vestas has a partnership with Tokyu Land Corporation and Japan Wind Development for the wind power project.

The order includes the supply and supervision of four V117-3.45 MW and six V105-3.45 MW turbines that are all delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode at Chitose Wind Farm, as well as eleven V105-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode at Noheji Mutsuwan Wind Farm.

All turbines will feature customised 94m towers to accommodate seismic loads, high turbulence and extreme windspeeds.

Vestas will provide multi-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service deals for both wind farms. The agreement will ensure optimised performance and business certainty with an energy-based availability guarantee.

Vestas will start the delivery of turbines in the first quarter of 2021 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2021.

“Projects like Chitose and Noheji Mutsuwan wind farms demonstrate Vestas’ market experience, service solutions, and supply chain to provide the best return of investment for the lifecycle of a wind farm,” says Clive Turton, president of Vestas Asia Pacific.

Vestas has installed a total of 650 MW, making Vestas the leading wind energy provider in Japan.
