Vestas, a leading wind turbine manufacturer, has recently received a firm order from Vattenfall Vindkraft AB, a subsidiary of the Vattenfall AB group, to supply turbines for the Velinga wind project in Sweden. The project, located in the municipality of Tidaholm in Västra Götaland County, aims to generate 67 MW of clean, fossil-free electricity.
The order includes twelve V150-6.0 MW wind turbines, operating in 5.6 MW mode, and encompasses the entire process from supply to delivery and commissioning. Vestas is scheduled to commence turbine delivery in the second quarter of 2025, with commissioning expected to be completed in the second half of the same year.
Vestas will provide long-term servicing for the turbines under the Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. This agreement is designed to ensure optimized performance of the assets, reflecting Vestas’ commitment to sustaining the project’s efficiency over the long term.
