Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for 99 MW consisting of 33 V112-3.0 MW turbines for Sweden.
Vestas is pleased to announce its first order from Rabbalshede Kraft AB. The 99 MW order will supply 33 V112-3.0 MW turbines for two projects – in Årjäng, Värmland; and in Skaveröd, located in Uddevalla.
The contract includes turbine delivery, installation, and commissioning; an eight-year Active Management Output (AOM) 5000 service agreement, offering the customer assured performance and helping to avoid unforeseen operational costs; and the Vestas OCAS (Optical Collision Avoidance System) solution, which activates the aviation safety lights only when needed. Turbine installation is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2014.
“We are pleased to initiate our first projects with a new customer, following constructive and wide-ranging interactions with their key personnel. Rabbalshede Kraft and Vestas are focused on creating long-term strategic value, and this transaction will form the foundation for an ongoing collaboration,” says Vestas Northern Europe Vice President Sales, Krister Poole Jönsson.
“We have today commenced the execution of our wind parks in Årjäng and Skaveröd where we have chosen Vestas as the wind turbine supplier. It is with great confidence and expectations we are now entering into this long-term strategic partnership where we can utilise this deal to further enhance our joint future opportunities,” says Thomas Linnard, CEO of Rabbalshede Kraft AB.
“This order further solidifies Vestas’ leading role in the Swedish wind market, which remains an important priority for us. Rabbalshede Kraft AB is an important player in Swedish wind power, and this order gives momentum to our evolving business relationship. We look forward to working with Rabbalshede Kraft to support them in realising their wind power ambitions in the coming years,” says Klaus Steen Mortensen, President Vestas Northern Europe.
