Vestas wins 100 MW deal in Argentina

The order for the Corti wind project takes Vestas’ firm order intake in Argentina since December 2016 to 225 MW

Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order from Greenwind S.A, a subsidiary of Pampa Energía, one of the largest power companies in Argentina, to supply 29 V126-3.45 MW turbines for the 100 MW Corti wind park in the Bahía Blanca, Argentina.

The order is an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract and comprises supply, installation, civil works and commissioning of the wind turbines. A 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service agreement is also included to ensure optimal operation of the wind farm at all times. Turbine delivery is planned for the third quarter of 2017, while commissioning is expected for the second quarter of 2018.

Argentina has committed to reach 20 percent renewable energy by the end of 2025 and recently passed the Argentinian Renewable Energy Law, which requires large electricity consumers to get a minimum of eight percent of its power production from renewable sources.
