    Vestas receives its first order for the new V136-3.45 MW

    With reference to the Vestas Wind Systems A/S company announcement No. 74/2015 of 30 December 2015, Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for 34 V136-3.45 MW turbines for the 117 MW Metsala wind power project, which will be Finland’s largest onshore project, the Danish company said in a press release.

    The order was placed by the Finnish energy company EPV Tuulivoima Oy and includes supply and installation as well as a 10-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement. Delivery of the wind turbines is expected to begin in 2017.

    EPV Tuulivoima Oy Managing Director Frans Liski, says “We are proud to install our biggest onshore wind park and place the first order for Vestas’ new V136-3.45 MW turbine. We have chosen the V136-3.45 MW as it will deliver increased energy output and thus provides us an optimal choice within the Metsala project site constraints”.

    The V136-3.45 MW has been very well-received after its launch, particularly in the low wind segment across several markets due to the turbine’s compelling balance between advanced technology and proven performance, enabling an increase in energy output and reduction in the cost of energy.

    Klaus Steen Mortensen, President, Vestas Northern Europe, says, “It’s great news to all of Vestas that EPV Tuulivoima Oy has placed the very first order for our V136-3.45 MW turbine and that it comes only three months after the turbine was officially launched.  The wind park will be the first large scale V136-3.45 MW project and underlines our customers’ confidence in Vestas’ 3 MW platform, which has already reached 7 GW of installed capacity and more than 10 GW of firm and unconditional orders worldwide”.

    EPV Tuulivoima Oy purchased their first Vestas turbines in 2013 and has ordered a total of 33 V126-3.3 MW turbines on top of today’s order of 34 V136-3.45 MW turbines.
