Vestas has won a deal from Vena Energy to service its 54 MW Gamesa turbines at Pililla Wind Project in the Philippines.

The agreement is Vestas’ first multi-brand service deal in the Philippines, leveraging its experience from servicing 3.6 GW Gamesa turbines globally, including Taiwan in the Asia Pacific region.

The Pililla wind power project, located 50 kilometres east of the capital city, Manila, has 27 Gamesa G90-2.0 MW turbines.

Vestas, the leading wind turbine supplier in the world, will commence a 5-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to maximise the wind farm’s energy production.

With a yield-based availability guarantee for turbines and services for balance of plant assets, the agreement will provide Vena Energy with improved certainty of return on its wind asset investment, said Samrinder Nehria, head of Vena Energy Philippines.

Vestas currently services more than 8 GW of non-Vestas turbines, comprising a number of major wind turbine brands.
