Vestas has received a 132 MW order from Akuo Energy, a worldwide player in Renewable Energy, for the wind projects Wielowies, located in southern Poland and EP 44 and Gniew, located in northern Poland.
All three projects will comprise tailored solutions including site-specific rotor sizes, ratings and hub heights that will cater for specific site and transportation constraints while maximising annual energy production. The Wielowies project will feature 19 V136-3.45 MW turbines and one V126-3.45 MW turbine that will all be operating in 3.3 MW. The EP 44 project consists of 22 V110-2.0 MW turbines and the Gniew wind farm comprises 11 V110-2.0 MW.
“This achievement is the result of AKUO’s continuous efforts to develop sustainable clean energy solutions in Poland for past years, and the result of a close cooperation with Vestas’ teams to implement site specific and cost optimised solutions despite current global high demand in the wind energy sector. We fully trust in Vestas’ capability to execute those projects within allocated the time schedule and budget, to make these projects a common new success in wind energy”, says Eric Scotto, CEO and Co-Founder of Akuo Energy.
The three wind energy projects will feature Vestas' Online Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output. The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. Turbine deliveries are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2020, while commissioning is planned for the third and fourth quarter of 2020.
