Statkraft has a significant portfolio of renewable energy projects in Ireland which are currently being developed and will be going into construction over the next few years, this includes wind and solar farms as well as battery grid services projects.
“This order underlines the strong cooperation between Statkraft and Vestas and we are proud to be part of our customer’s success in Ireland’s RESS 1 auction. We see a promising outlook for wind in Ireland in the next ten years with the country targeting 70 percent renewable electricity by 2030,” said Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Northern & Central Europe.
The project will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output. The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
Turbine deliveries are due to commence in the second quarter of 2022.
