Vestas, the #1 wind turbine equipment maker, has won an order from the Nordic developer OX2 for the wind projects Kropuln and Storbacken in Western Finland.

The projects have a total capacity of 60 MW of V150-4.2 MW turbines delivered in Power Optimised Mode to maximise power production based on the sites’ specific wind conditions.

The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 30-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement and a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution to lower turbine downtime and optimise the energy output.

“Vestas has developed turbines and service structures fit for the Nordic unsubsidised market and we are very happy to strengthen the long-standing relationship between OX2 and Vestas with this project,” said Paul Stormoen, CEO of OX2.

Vestas will start the delivery of the wind turbine in the second quarter of 2021. OX2 will start the commissioning of the wind power project in the third quarter of 2021.

“This merchant order underlines how a tailored technical solution that leverages our market experience and project expertise enables a highly competitive business case for our long-term customer OX2 and their partners,” said Christer Baden Hansen, vice president Sales North & West, Vestas Northern & Central Europe.
