Vestas has won a 47 MW wind project in Northern Ireland from ERG, a wind energy operator in Europe.

Vestas will supply 13 V112-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW operating mode to maximise energy production.

Vestas last year secured an order intake of more than 200 MW in the United Kingdom.

“The Evishagaran wind project enables a highly competitive business case for our valued long-term business partner ERG and offers the lowest cost of energy to the energy consumer,” said Anna Schlasberg Wachtmeister, director Sales UK, Vestas Northern & Central Europe.

The project will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output. The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

Vestas will start the deliver turbine in the second quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the second and third quarter of 2021.
