Vestas announced it received a 46 MW order from Yeongwol Eco Wind for the Yeongwol Eco Wind Project in Yeongwol-gun, Gangwon-do, Korea.

Daewoo E&C will construct the wind power project. Vestas will start the delivery in the second quarter of 2022, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of the same year.

Vestas will deliver a customized solution with site-specific towers that meets the transportation requirements, while also maximising annual energy production. At 132m in height, the project will feature the tallest hubs for wind turbines installed with a tubular steel tower in South Korea.

The wind order includes eleven Vestas V136-4.2 MW wind turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement for the wind farm, providing a time-based availability guarantee to ensure optimised performance and long-term business case certainty for the customer.

Purvin Patel, President and CEO of Vestas Asia Pacific, said: “It is encouraging to see South Korea’s ambitions to increase the deployment of renewable energy and this project is an important step towards that goal.”

William Gaillard, Vice-President of Sales of Vestas Asia Pacific, said. “The V136-4.2 MW wind turbine is based on a proven platform and this partnership also demonstrates Vestas’ technical and engineering expertise to tailor a suitable solution, working hand in hand with our customer to improve its business case.”
