Vestas Receives 60 MW Order With Auction Win in Poland

Hamburg, Germany – The wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has received a 60 MW order from Eurowind Energy A/S, a leading developer and operator of sustainable energy projects, for the Janikowo wind project which will be located in the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Province in Poland.

Awarded at the Polish wind-solar energy auction, in December 2019, the project attests to the increasing competitiveness of wind energy, as Vestas points out. The order marks the second win for Vestas in the auction round. The project comprises 29 V100-2.0 MW turbines and one V90-2.0 MW turbine with 120- and 100-meter towers respectively. Turbine deliveries are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2021.

To secure this project, Vestas has developed a site-specific solution that will maximise power production, while catering for specific local site constraints.

“The Janikowo project marks a Polish market rebound and Eurowind Energy A/S has an increased focus on the Polish market. We are very proud of winning a total of 152 MW in the auction round in Poland with 11 projects. We are happy to continue our long-term collaboration with Vestas and look forward to strengthening this cooperation even further”, states Jens Rasmussen, CEO of Eurowind Energy A/S.

The project will feature a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution, offering real-time data insight from a diverse mix of data streams to enable more accurate forecasting. The system will enable decreased turbine downtime and optimised energy output. The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
