Vestas has secured a 40 MW order from Japan Wind Development (JWD) for the Hirado Minami Wind Farm in Japan. The order includes the supply and supervision of 11 V105-3.6 MW wind turbines to be delivered with customized 72.5-meter towers. The customized solution has been developed in close collaboration with JWD in order to accommodate the extreme local wind conditions and minimise the visual impact on the site’s aesthetics. According to the deal, Vestas will also provide a multi-year service agreement for the wind farm. The service agreement also has an energy-based availability guarantee that ensures optimised performance.

The delivery of the turbines will begin in the second quarter of 2021, with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2021.

Recently, Vestas also received an order from Capital Power for its 3.6 MW V136-3.45 MW turbines for the 97 MW Whitla Wind 2 and 54 MW Whitla Wind 3 projects in Alberta, Canada. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 10-year service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project. The delivery of the turbine and commissioning are scheduled for 2021.
