Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for two projects for a combined 200 MW from China’s Hanas Group.
The combined order is Vestas’ largest in China in 2015 and consists of 75 V110-2.0 MW turbines and 25 V100-2.0 MW turbines for the Azuoqi 1A and Azuoqi 1B projects in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
The projects include 2-year Active Output Management 4000 service contracts and SCADA VestasOnline Business for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance. Delivery and commissioning are expected in the second quarter of 2016.
Building on the 600 MW of turbines that Hanas Group has purchased from Vestas since 2011, the two parties signed a cooperation agreement in October 2015, reiterating their common goal to reinforce mutually beneficial collaboration in the years to come.
Chris Beaufait, President of Vestas Asia Pacific and China stated:
“We are proud to have a close partner like Hanas, which from the formation of their wind energy businesses has focused on the levelised cost of energy and world-class operations and maintenance practices for the turbines’ entire lifecycle, and we are pleased to see that more and more developers in China are following suit. At Vestas, we will continue to create value for our customers by bringing the latest technologies to the market with competitive lifetime cost of energy, enhanced by our unparalleled experience, know-how and services in operations and maintenance”.
