Vestas announced has received a 34 MW order for the Haramsfjellet wind project on the island of Haramsøya in western Norway.

The solution consists of eight V136-4.2 MW turbines and a long-term service contract to optimize energy production for the lifetime of the project in a high wind location.

The order is placed by Finnish-based Taaleri Energia investing via their SolarWind II fund in the project that will have an annual production of about 112 GWh; enough electricity to supply around 7,000 Norwegian households.

“We are very satisfied with the second investment from the Taaleri SolarWind II fund. This investment in Norwegian wind is underpinned by the availability of commercial offtake contracts in one of the world’s most liquid power markets,” says Taaleri Energia’s Managing Director, Kai Rintala.

The contract includes the supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 27-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. The project will also feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution to lower turbine downtime and optimize the energy output.

Turbine delivery is scheduled for the second quarter of 2020, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2020.
