Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for 42 MW. The 14 V90-3.0 MW turbines will be installed in the province of Obrovac, Croatia. The first turbine delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2014 and the wind power plant is expected to be commissioned during the second quarter of 2014.
The order has been placed by Eko Energija d.o.o., a company wholly owned by the EnerCap Power Funds, both of which are managed by EnerCap Capital Partners.
The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines, along with a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution as well as a seven-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 4000). The AOM 4000 service package offers customers assured performance, helping them to avoid unforeseen operational costs.
“We’re delighted to commence the construction of the Obrovac wind power plant which marks our first investment in Croatia. We will also have an active role in overseeing the construction of this project which will benefit from our experienced team of construction and asset management professionals,” comments Alastair Hammond, partner at EnerCap Capital Partners. “We are pleased to work with Vestas again, following our successful project in Scieki, Poland, last year, and we are looking forward to a positive cooperation during the installation and service phase.”
“This wind power project is another important milestone in the development of Croatia’s promising wind market. Vestas is pleased to receive the 42 MW order from our valued customer Eko Energija and to support their vision and business case with reliable wind turbines, services and our 30 years of wind energy experience,” says Thomas Richterich, President of Vestas Central Europe.
“We are pleased to continue our good cooperation with EnerCap. The realisation of this project is a further confirmation of Vestas’ success and commitment in the region,” says Mikael Rönholm-Nielsen, Vice President Sales, Austria/Eastern Europe.
The power plant will produce more than 110,000 MWh per year, which corresponds to an annual saving of over 35,000 tons of CO2 emissions. Furthermore, it will provide enough electricity to cover the residential electricity consumption of more than 31,000 Croatian households.
