After a competitive tender process, long-term Vestas customer Eneco has placed an order for six V112-3.45-MW turbines in 3.6-MW Power Optimized Mode. The wind turbines are for the 50-MW Slufterdam wind park near Rotterdam in The Netherlands.
The order was placed by Eneco’s special project company, Windpark Eneco Slufterdam B.V., and includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a full-scope service agreement. Delivery and commissioning of the wind turbines are planned for the second half of 2018.
Vestas recently received another Dutch order from Nuon Energy in June 2017, for 28 MW of V112-3.45-MW turbines with 3.6-MW Power Optimized Mode. It is also for the Slufterdam wind farm, which will have a total capacity of 50 MW.
“The V112-3.45-MW in 3.6-MW Power Optimized Mode is one of the most proven turbines globally, and we look forward to providing Nuon and Eneco a strong return on their investment,” said Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Central Europe.
Slufterdam is a joint project between Noun Energy and Eneco, two key players in the Dutch wind industry. Vestas’ winning tender offer includes supply of all turbines, as well as the service agreements is part of the EU-tendering procedure (executed by Eneco and Noun Energy).
“Nuon Energy and Eneco are long-term customers and key players in the Dutch wind energy sector and we are happy that they once again show full confidence in the business case certainty that our state-of-the-art wind solutions offer,” said de Baar.
