Vestas, a Danish wind turbine manufacturer, has received a 373 MW wind turbine contract from Red Rocket, a South African independent power producer. The company will provide five V162-6.2MW Enventus turbines, 12 V163-4.5MW turbines, and 64 V150-4.5MW wind turbines. The turbines will be installed at the Brandvalley, Rietkloof and Wolf wind parks, which are located in South Africa’s Western and Eastern Capes. Vestas intends to deliver and commission the wind turbines by 2024. Also, the company has a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) agreement for the servicing of the turbines.
Earlier this month, RWE and Northland Power have selected Vestas as the preferred turbine provider for their Nordseecluster wind project in Germany. The four offshore wind farms that make up the 1.6 GW Nordseecluster project are situated in the German North Sea to the north of the island of Juist. Vestas would supply 104 of its V236-15.0MW offshore wind turbines once the project receives a final investment decision.
