Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has been awarded a wind turbine supply contract from European wind energy operator ERG.

As per the terms of the contract, Vestas will supply 13 of its V112-3.45MW turbines in 3.6MW operating mode for the 47MW Evishagaran wind project in Northern Ireland.

Under the contract, Vestas will also be responsible for installation and commissioning of the wind turbines.

Vestas Northern & Central Europe UK sales director Anna Schlasberg Wachtmeister said: “The Evishagaran wind project enables a highly competitive business case for our valued long-term business partner ERG and offers the lowest cost of energy to the energy consumer.

“Demonstrating our strong experience and track record in a merchant environment, this project marks another step forward for renewable energy in the UK.”

Vestas claims that its wind turbines have been designed to increase the production of energy and at a competitive cost.
