Vindkraft and Vestas also commissioned a 9 MW Novorossiske wind power plant in 2011/12.
The contract comprises supply, installation and commissioning of seven V112-3.0 MW wind turbines, along with a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution. Delivery is planned to start at the end of the third quarter of 2013 and commissioning is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2013.
“We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Vestas in Ukraine,” said Vindkraft’s managing director, Carl Sturen. “We are determined to develop a project portfolio of wind power plants in Kherson to contribute to the overall growth of renewable and green energy production in this country.
“This third order from Vindkraft contributes to strengthening our position currently being one of the market leaders on the Ukrainian market, and it supports our strategy placing a solid footprint on this important emerging market,” said Thomas Richterich, president of Vestas Central Europe. “We look forward to working in a close partnership with Vindkraft and continuing to develop the excellent wind resources in Ukraine.”
The wind power plants will contribute to Ukraine’s goal of increasing the country’s wind energy capacities. Beregovaya and Stavki will produce more than 70 GWh per year, enough green energy to cover the residential electricity consumption of more than 15,000 households.
As of 31 December 2012, Vestas has delivered 523 V112-3.0 MW turbines worldwide representing a total capacity of more than 1.5 GW, and has received more than 3 GW of firm orders for this model.
