Der 30-MW-Auftrag für Vestas beinhaltet den Aufbau von V126-3.45 MW-Turbinen im Windpark Kiata, im südöstlichen Australien, das von der internationalen Windlab Limited entwickelt wurde.
(WK-intern) – The 30 MW order for Vestas V126-3.45 MW turbines was placed for the Kiata wind farm, a project in southeastern Australia developed by international wind energy company Windlab Limited.
Located west of Horsham, Victoria, near the town of Nhill, the Kiata wind farm is an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) project for Vestas.
The order also includes a five-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service contract, in which Vestas guarantees a defined level of availability and performance, and a SCADA VestasOnline Business for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
Windlab secured financing from John Laing Group and National Australia Bank. John Laing will own approximately 72 percent of the wind farm with the balance owned by Windlab and project neighbours.
“We are pleased to continue our partnership with Vestas to add another wind farm project to our Australian portfolio. Windlab highly appreciates Vestas’ support and is looking forward to the successful completion of this exciting project”, said Dr. Nathan Steggel, General Manager Operations of Windlab.
“We are delighted to have been selected to deliver the project. This appointment is a testament to the strength of the relationship between Windlab and Vestas. Following our past successes, we are excited to move the Kiata project into construction and ultimately deliver for Windlab,” said Dirk Zimmerling, Sales Director of Vestas Australia.
Delivery and commissioning of the turbines are expected in the second half of 2017.
