Vestas’ customer Polenergia Farma Wiatrowa Debice/Kostomloty has secured a 27 MW wind project from Poland’s technology-neutral energy auction in December 2019 with a customised wind energy solution developed by Vestas.
The site-specific solution comprises nine V136-3.45 MW turbines in 3.0 MW Power Optimised Mode on 122m towers as well as a 30-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, leveraging the flexibility of the 4 MW platform to maximise the project’s power production while catering for local requirements.
The wind project, which is the fifth project together with Polenergia, will be located in south-west Poland in the Dolnośląskie voivodship.
This order adds to the more than 1.5 GW of contracts signed by Vestas in Poland’s auction system, which showcases the company’s ability to support customers in submitting winning auction bids.
“Kostomłoty Wind Farm construction is a next significant step in the green transformation of the Polish energy market. The estimated annual production of the Kostomłoty Wind Farm will amount to 87 GWh, which corresponds to the electricity demand of 44 000 households,” Michał Michalski, president of the Management Board of Polenergia, said.
“The competitiveness of our 4 MW platform together with our long-term service offering provides a highly competitive levelised cost of energy, optimising our customer’s business case,” said Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Northern & Central Europe.
The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines. In addition, the project will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output.
Vestas said it will start delivery and commissioning in the first quarter of 2022.
