Wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has secured an order from Hydro Tasmania to deliver turbines for the Musselroe wind farm project to be constructed in Tasmania, Australia.

Under the contract, Vestas will supply, install and commission 56 units of the V90-3.0MW wind turbine for the project.

The contract also includes a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution and a ten-year service agreement.

The V90-3.0MW wind turbines are designed to be easily transported and installed as they are light in weight.

Vestas Asia Pacific president Sean Sutton said the company is pleased to be chosen as the wind energy solution partner by Hydro Tasmania for the development of the Musselroe Wind Farm, whose location is ideally suited to the Vestas V90-3.0MW turbine.

"The go-ahead for this project is great news for the Tasmanian economy, and Vestas is proud to be playing a key role," added Sutton.

Vestas CEO Ditlev Engel, who signed the contract with the Danish trade delegation, said it was a pleasure to participate in the signing of this wind project.

"Hydro Tasmania is a very important customer to Vestas and the fact they have shown us this trust for such a major project in Tasmania is a clear signal of the strong co-operation between our two organizations," added Engel.

Final terms of the contracts have been fulfilled and Vestas and Hydro Tasmania are now able to disclose this firm and unconditional order.

The wind turbines will be manufactured in 2012, prior to installation on site during the first half of 2013.

Denmark-based Vestas is engaged in developing, manufacturing, installing and maintaining high performing and high quality wind power plant solutions.
