Vestas has won an order from Enlight Renewable Energy for the 113 MW wind project Malarberget in Norberg County, Sweden.

Vestas has developed a solution to fit the site’s wind conditions that includes 27 V150-4.2 MW turbines and a 30-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement to optimise energy production for the lifetime of the project.

Vestas said it surpassed 400 MW order intake for the V150-4.2 MW turbine in Sweden. This is Vestas’ third order of V150-4.2 MW turbines in the country this year, taking Vestas’ total order intake in Sweden over the years past 4.3 GW.

“Enlight is expanding in rapid pace with special focus on merchant markets and sees Vestas as a strong player to take part and contribute to this significant growth,” said Gilad Yavetz, Enlight CEO.

The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, and the project will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution to lower turbine downtime and optimise the energy output.

Vestas will deliver turbine in the third quarter of 2020, while commissioning is expected to start in the fourth quarter of the same year.
