Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for 13 V100-2.0MW turbines for a wind power plant in South Korea’s northeastern Gangwon Province. These will be Vestas’ first V100 wind turbines in the country. The order was placed by one of the largest South Korean conglomerates that has been active in the wind power industry as a project developer and EPC contractor.
“South Korea is an increasingly attractive wind energy market as the country continues diversifying its energy mix to reduce its dependence on nuclear power and imported fossil fuels. We are able to help maximise the customer’s return on investment by offering a competitive cost of energy”, says Danny Nielsen, head of Vestas Pan-Asia. Delivery and commissioning are expected during the second half of 2016. Vestas will be responsible for the supply and installation of the wind turbines.

The project, with an expected annual power production of 76.6GWh, includes a 10-year active output management (AOM) 4000 service contract, in which Vestas guarantees a defined level of availability and performance. The project also includes SCADA Vestas Business Online for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
