Vestas has received an order for the Fullabrook project from Devon Wind Power Ltd., a subsidiary of ESB Wind Development UK, for delivery of 22 units of the V90-3.0 MW wind turbine.
The order has a total capacity of 66 MW and the turbines will be installed in North Devon, England. Delivery of the turbines is scheduled to be completed in April 2011. The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines, a VestasOnline® Business SCADA system and a 10-year service agreement.
“We are very pleased to announce this order,” says Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe. “When completed, the Fullabrook will become the largest onshore wind farm in England, and it is a landmark in both the development of ESB as one of our key accounts and in their strategic goal of investing EUR 4 billion in renewable generation projects. Vestas looks forward to playing an active role in the achievement of this target.”
When put into production, the plants will save the environment from an annual emission of more than 91,000 tons of CO2 compared with average generated energy sources in the United Kingdom.
