Vestas has bagged an 80 MW order for the wind farm Kroningswind majority owned by the infrastructure investor TINC.

The order is adding to Vestas’ installed onshore wind capacity of more than 2 GW in the Netherlands.

Wind farm Kroningswind is located on Goeree-Overflakkee in the South-West of the Netherlands.

Vestas has developed a solution that comprises supply, installation and commissioning 19 V117-4.2 MW turbines and a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, capable of maximizing the project’s annual energy production while meeting local restrictions at the site.

The wind farm will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output.

Chrisbert Van Kooten, chief investment officer of TINC, said: “For TINC as a long-term investor, innovative solutions, strict planning and long-term operational and financial commitment to the project were key elements in the selection of Vestas.”

Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Northern & Central Europe, said: “Generating enough wind power to supply more than 60.000 Dutch households annually, the project marks a significant step for the renewable power supply of the region and emphasises our contribution to the country’s ambitions for sustainable energy.”
