The contract will be executed on a full EPC basis, including civil and electrical engineering, procurement, construction and manufacturing, delivery and installation of the wind turbines. Preparations for construction will be commencing in 2017, after which the wind power systems will be installed in the beginning of 2019. In addition, a ten-year full operation and maintenance contract has also been signed.
