Vestas has received an order for a total of 24 units of the V90-2.0 MW turbine
and 16 units of the V90-1.8 MW turbine for three projects in Spain. The contract
comprises supply, installation, a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution, as well
as a five-year service agreement. The first turbines are expected to be
installed by the end of 2009.
The order has been placed by Eufer, which is a joint venture between the Italian
Enel Green Power and the Spanish Union Fenosa. As of 1 January 2009, Eufer was
the fifth largest wind energy company in Spain with a market share of 3.7 per
cent of cumulative wind power.
“We are very pleased with this order from Eufer, which is the result of a close
cooperation between our two companies. Eufer is one of the key players in Spain,
and one of the fastest growing companies in the local market in terms of
installed capacity” says Juan Araluce, President of Vestas Mediterranean. “This
contract shows Eufer’s confidence in Vestas’ technology and in our products, and
we are glad to continue working with them,” concludes Juan Araluce.
The total annual production of the power plants will amount to 138 GWh. The
projects will cover the yearly electricity needs of almost 30,000 Spanish
households and will save the environment from more than 54,000 tons of CO2
emissions per year.
