Vestas to supply 40 turbines for Titan Wind Energy’s project in China
Danish company Vestas has received an order from manufacturer Titan Wind Energy to deliver 40 V110-2.0MW wind turbines in China.
The turbines will be delivered for a project in Licun Town in eastern China’s Shandong Province. With hub heights of 137m, the turbines will be the tallest used in any project in China.
As part of the order, Vestas will be responsible for both delivering the turbines and supervising their installation.
Titan Wind Energy's chief executive officer Yan Junxu said: “For our first project in low and medium-wind resource area in eastern China, we believe that Vestas’ rich experience in tall tower technology and its high-quality turbines will help us capture more wind energy, thus achieving competitive cost of energy.”
The order also includes an active output management (AOM) 4000 service contract for two years, which would provide a defined level of availability and performance. It is also expected to provide a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) VestasOnline Business system for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.
Vestas' Asia Pacific and China president Chris Beaufait said: “Titan has been Vestas’ tower supplier for about ten years.
“We are pleased to see that the relationship between us has expanded and upgraded from a buyer-supplier one into a closer and enriched partnership.”
Delivery of the wind turbines is expected to take place in Q2, 2017. Commissioning is planned to be conducted in the second half of the same year.
