Danish turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems has received orders from renewable energy firm EDF Energies Nouvelles (EDF EN) to supply 29 of its V100-2.0MW turbines to a wind power project in Poland.

The turbines will be installed at the wind power project in Lubuskie near Rzepin.

This plant is considered to be one of the largest in the north-western region of Poland.

The contract involves foundation works, supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines in addition to providing the VestasOnline Business SCADA solution and a two-year service agreement.

"Vestas has delivered around 540 wind turbines to Poland in total, amounting to more than 1,100MW."

The delivery of the V100-2.0MW turbines for the wind farm will start by the first quarter of 2015 and the commissioning is expected to start by the fourth quarter of the same year.

The wind power project is a part of the 2011 Frame Agreement signed between EDF EN and Vestas for Europe and the US.

Vestas Northern Europe president Klaus Steen Mortensen said: "It is a pleasure for us to announce another large order for Poland and to further build on the long-term partnership with our highly-valued customer EDF EN.

"We are happy to be chosen as the wind turbine supplier and service provider for these wind power plants and to consolidate our market leadership in Poland."

So far, Vestas has delivered around 540 wind turbines in Poland, totalling more than 1,100MW.

Vestas claims that its V100-1.8/2.0 MW turbines enable its clients to increase productivity by opening up low- and medium-wind sites that were earlier considered non-feasible.
