Reinforcing Vestas’ competitiveness in Ireland, IMPAX Asset Management has placed an order for 11 units of Vestas’ V112-3.3 MW wind turbines.
The 3-MW platform is particularly well-suited for the Irish market because it meets the country’s demanding grid-connection requirements.
In addition to the normal health and safety requirements for large-scale construction, all connections in Ireland must be Grid Code compliant. Ireland’s Grid Code is a technical document containing the rules governing the operation, maintenance and development of the transmission system and co-ordination of the actions of all users of the transmission system
“This is our fifth project in partnership with Vestas, and we are happy to build on our strong relationship with them,” shared Victor Juttmann, Director at Impax Asset Management. “The V112-3.3 MW turbine meets the stringent local requirements, and we believe that it is the most suitable turbine for the wind resources at this particular site.”
The 36-MW order for the Glanaruddery wind farm in County Kerry includes delivery, installation, and commissioning. as well as a 12-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement.
“We are pleased to see the continued market confidence in our V112-3.3 MW turbine in Ireland. This order emphasises the versatility of Vestas’ product portfolio and our ability to create the best possible solutions for our customers every time.” said Klaus Steen Mortensen, President, Vestas Northern Europe.
Delivery and installation are expected in the third quarter of 2016 with commissioning expected in the fourth quarter of 2016.
