Vestas has won its fourth order from the latest Polish auction round for a total order intake of more than 350 MW.

This 36 MW wind project consists of ten V126-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode combined with site specific towers and a 20-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service contract.

The order is for the two wind projects Dobrowo and Retowo. The project is located in the northwest of Poland and has been developed by ENERTRAG, a German key player in the wind industry with more than 20 years of experience in the European wind market.

“With Vestas, we believe we have found the right partner with the best technology for the Dobrowo and Retowo sites and are very optimistic that the turbines will be up and running as expected next year,” said Bastian Altrichter, head of Procurement in ENERTRAG.

“Attesting to the increasing competitiveness of wind energy, this project underlines Vestas’ capability to deliver competitive wind energy solutions and services that enable our customers to build winning bids in auctions,” said Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Northern & Central Europe.

The wind project will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and optimising the energy output. The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

Vestas will start the delivery in the second quarter of 2021 and commission in the third quarter of 2021.
