The order for the Galawhistle project comprises 22 V90-3.0 MW turbines and includes delivery, installation and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 5-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement. Turbine delivery is expected in the second quarter of 2016, with expected project completion in early 2017.
Eric Machiels, Chief Executive of Infinis, states: “At a time when the UK Government has pledged to meet its international obligations to reduce carbon emissions and decarbonise power generation, Infinis continues to believe that onshore wind remains the most effective renewable energy technology and that it is best placed to help achieve these goals at the lowest cost to consumers”.
“We are very pleased that Infinis have chosen to work with us on the Galawhistle wind power plant. Despite regulatory uncertainty, this order underlines our engagement and commitment in the UK market, where cus-tomers see the value of deploying cost-competitive, carbon-free onshore wind”, says Klaus Steen Mortensen, President Vestas Northern Europe.
