Vestas Secures EPC order for Wind Energy Project worth 101 MW in Gujarat

Vestas has announced that it has won an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for setting up a 101 MW project in Gujarat.

The company secured its first order of 2019 from Trinethra Wind & Hydro Power, a subsidiary of Continuum Wind Energy. The project is planned to sell power to commercial and industrial consumers through a third-party Power Purchase Agreements (PPA).

The company said in a declaration, the order reiterates the Indian market’s confidence in its EPC competencies, coming on the back of a fresh 252 Mw EPC order from Vivid Solaire Energy Pvt Ltd.

“We will be working closely with our partners to help India meet its renewable energy needs while enhancing the Indian wind energy sector by providing long-term job opportunities as well as low-cost energy to the local community,” believed Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific.

The project is situated at Rajkot in Gujarat and the order includes delivery, installation and commissioning of 46 V120-2.2 Mw turbines, as well as the project’s civil and electrical work. Upon completion of the project, Vestas will begin a 15-year service agreement as well as a SCADA solution.

Turbine delivery under the order is projected to initiate in the first quarter of 2019 and commissioning is anticipated by second quarter of 2019.
