Vestas wins order from Alandsbanken for Murtomaki wind project

Vestas V155-3.3 MW wind turbine

Vestas announced that it has secured a 90 MW order from Alandsbanken for the Murtomaki wind project.

The wind power deal comprises 15 V162-6.0 MW turbines maximising the yield under the permitted tip height and a 30-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

The customized solution, leveraging the upgraded rating of the EnVentus platform, is designed to ensure better energy production for the lifetime of the project at a highly competitive levelised cost of energy, Vestas said.

This is the second deal with the upgraded V162-6.0 MW wind turbines in Finland, Vestas said. The wind turbine company surpasses 600 MW in orders of EnVentus turbines in the country.

“Murtomaki wind farm with Vestas turbines is the first investment of the newly established Wind Power Fund of Alandsbanken,” said Juha Kankanen, investment director of Alandsbanken Funds.

YIT Suomi Oy has developed the project and will continue to be a part of their project development process until completion in 2023.

“This project strongly supports our climate goals, since the Murtomaki wind farm produces an amount of renewable domestic electricity that is equal to the consumption of approximately 15,000 single-family houses annually,” said Harri Kailasalo, EVP, Infrastructure Projects, YIT.

Nils de Baar, president of Vestas Northern & Central Europe, said: “The competitiveness of the V162-6.0 MW turbine together with the focus on Finland and our long-term service offering ensures maximum value for our customer’s business case.”

Turbine delivery is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2023, while commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2023.
