Vestas secures 50 MW order and surpasses 1 GW order intake in Portugal – EQ Mag Pro
Vestas has signed a 50 MW contract for the repowering of four wind parks to be located in the north of Portugal. The contract includes the supply and installation of eleven V150-4.5 MW wind turbines, as well as a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
With these projects, Vestas reaches the milestone of 1 GW order intake for wind energy projects in Portugal. The company also provides service to almost 1 GW of wind turbines in the country, both from Vestas and other brands.
“With these projects, we reach two great milestones in Portugal, as they are the first with our V150-4.5 MW technology and they led us to reach the landmark of 1 GW of orders in the country. We are proud to see how our 4 MW platform continues to answer our customer’s needs optimising its business case while contributing enormously to the Portuguese sustainable development”, says Agustín Sánchez Tembleque, Vestas General Manager for Spain and Portugal.
