Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has received a firm order for 24 V112-3.3 MW turbines including Vestas De-icing System (VDS) for a 79.2MW wind power project in Sweden.

The wind power plant Fäbodliden is located at Västerbotten.

Vestas will begin the delivery of the turbines in the third quarter of 2015. The turbines will be commissioned in the fourth quarter of 2015.

The order comprises supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines, in addition to providing the VestasOnline Business SCADA solution and a three-year servicing facility.

VDS can be serviced easily from within the hub and inside the blade as it does not need electrical components to be installed in the blade’s leading edge.

In addition to boosting the system’s robustness, it keeps the system at low risk from lightning damage.

Designed to de-ice the outer profile of the blade focusing on the tip end, VDA ensures maximum efficiency of regaining power production after ice buildup occurs.

It is completely integrated with Vestas’ control systems and can be designed as per a client’s de-icing strategy, the company claimed.

As it can be triggered automatically or manually, it allows customers to have full monitoring control of the system.

Vestas Northern Europe president Klaus Steen Mortensen said: "Today’s order with Fred. Olsen Renewables constitutes another milestone for Vestas in the Swedish market. We look forward to the execution phase of the project.

"The Vestas De-icing System is proving to be a popular option for projects in cold climates."
