Eolus Vind AB has placed an order for eight V112-3.3 MW turbines for the Kungsbacka-Iglasjön wind power plant, proving Vestas’ ability to deliver a strong business case in the challenging Swedish market.
Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for the Kungsbacka-Iglasjön wind power plant in the Västra Götaland county in southwestern Sweden. The order comprises eight V112-3.3 MW turbines and includes delivery, installation, and a 5-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement. The delivery and commissioning of turbines is expected to take place in the second half of 2016.
Low pricing on electricity and green certificates has put further pressure on lowering the cost of energy. This order demonstrates that a good business case is possible with the right technology.
“I´m very happy with the cooperation we have with Vestas. They have been able to meet the demands and specifications that we have in order to establish the Kungsbacka-Iglasjön wind farm in the challenging Swedish market. Eolus’ ambition is to establish wind farms at the lowest possible cost per produced MWh, and good cooperation with leading turbine suppliers like Vestas is key to achieving this”, says Per Witalisson, CEO of Eolus.
Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe, emphasises the importance of building and maintaining long-term relationships with Eolus Vind AB as one of the key players in the Swedish market:
“Vestas strives to lower the cost of energy everywhere in the world, and by announcing this order with Eolus, one of our valued customers in Sweden, we show that long-term collaboration coupled with the right turbine technology can provide a very attractive business case”, says Klaus Steen Mortensen, President Vestas Northern Europe.
