Vestas adds new French wind orders


France – Vestas has secured two new orders from Ocean Winds and H2Air for wind projects in France.

In partnership with the Banque des Territoires, Ocean Winds, the international offshore wind energy company formed by EDP Renewables (EDPR) and ENGIE, placed a 30 MW order for the Éoliennes Flottantes du Golfe du Lion (EFGL) offshore wind park.

The contract includes the supply, transport, installation, supervision and commissioning of three V164-10.0 MW wind turbines. These will be installed on floating foundations in Port-la-Nouvelle and towed to their final location over 16 kilometres off the coast of the Leucate-Le Barcarès area in the Mediterranean Sea in water depths of 65 to 80 metres.

The project also includes an Active Output Management (AOM 5000) agreement, for the maintenance and service of the wind park over the next 18 years.

Second order

More than 31 MW of wind turbines have been ordered by the renewable energy company H2Air for a variety of projects in both central France and southwestern France. Two V126-3.45 MW wind turbines, two V112-3.45 MW wind turbines, one V117-4.2 MW wind turbine, and three V136-4.2 MW wind turbines are part of the order. Some of the wind turbines will be delivered in various power modes optimized for the local wind conditions, thus demonstrating how Vestas’ 4 MW platform can cover all wind segments, enabling our customers to find the best turbines for each specific site.

A 20-year service agreement for Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) is also part of the contract. The delivery and commissioning of the turbines is expected to take place in the fourth quarter of that year.
