Vestas Wins 30-Megawatt Finland Order for Taller Turbines

Aug. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Vestas Wind Systems A/S won a 30-megawatt order for taller-than usual wind turbines in Finland that are able to reap more power during low winds.

The order for 9 V126-3.3 megawatt turbines from Reconcept GmbH is for the Ylivieska Pajukoski project in Finland’s Ylivieska region, Vestas said today in a statement. No terms were disclosed. The project includes a 12-year service contract. The turbines are to be delivered and commissioned by the end of the second quarter of 2015.

The towers will have a height to the hub of 137 meters (449 feet), among the tallest in the Vestas range. That allows for longer rotors that generate more energy in areas with low wind speeds. In comparison, the V117, another Vestas 3.3-megawatt turbine, can have hub heights as low as 91.5 meters.
