Danish wind turbine specialist Vestas has won wind turbines supply order for 80 MW of capacity for the wind farm Kroningswind in the Netherlands.

The Kroningswind wind farm is located on Goeree-Overflakkee in the South-West of the Netherlands and is majority owned by the Euronext listed infrastructure investor TINC.

The company has developed a solution that comprises supply, installation and commissioning of 19 V117-4.2 MW turbines and a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, capable of maximising the project’s annual energy production while meeting local restrictions at the site.

Further, the wind farm will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output.

Commenting on the order win, Chrisbert Van Kooten, Chief Investment Officer of TINC, said “we are confident to have selected in Vestas an experienced and reliable partner for the realisation of wind farm Kroningswind.”

Kooten added that “for TINC as a long-term investor, innovative solutions, strict planning and long-term operational and financial commitment to the project were key elements in the selection of Vestas. We now look forward to the realisation and the first day of power production.”

On signing of the order agreement, Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe, said “I’m excited that we have signed this agreement with wind farm Kroningswind and look forward to contribute in achieving the best possible return in wind power production.”

“Generating enough wind power to supply more than 60.000 Dutch households annually, the project marks a significant step for the renewable power supply of the region and emphasises our contribution to the country’s ambitions for sustainable energy,” commented Nils de Baar.

Meanwhile, this order is adding to the company’s installed onshore wind capacity of more than 2 GW in the country.

Recently, the company has also won 144 MW wind turbine order from Greek renewable energy company Terna Energy for the Karystia wind project in the prefecture of Evia, Greece. The scope of project work includes supply and installation of 40 V105-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.6 MW power optimised mode, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
