Vestas further strengthens its leading position in Denmark with a 45-MW turbine order placed by Hogager Vindpark K/S in Western Jutland, Denmark. The unconditional order comprises 21 V100-2.0 MW wind turbines, 17 of which will be delivered in power optimized mode to 2.2 MW.
The wind farm will be placed near Hogager in the municipality of Hol-stebro in Denmark. The order for the wind-power plant includes supply, installation, and commissioning of turbines, along with a 10-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service agreement.
This agreement comes at a time of low energy prices in Denmark but also during uncertainty about the long-term regulatory framework for onshore wind in the country. With a firm root in local community ownership, the order also highlights the continued interest for onshore wind despite challenging market conditions.
“Denmark continues to be an important market for Vestas and we are proud to be delivering Denmark’s soon-to-be third largest onshore wind park,” said Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe. “The order is evidence of a home market with a strong local interest for onshore wind projects that we hope will be reflected in a long-term supportive framework.”
Delivery of the turbines is expected in the third quarter of 2016 with commissioning in the fourth quarter.
