Danish power equipment manufacturer Vestas has won two wind turbine delivery orders for a 76MW project in South Korea, and another 90MW project in Brazil.

The first order has been placed by Hanwha E&C for the YEP project, which will be equipped with 22 of the firm’s V112-3.45 MW turbine models.

Planned to be developed in Young Yang in the eastern part of the country, the project will be the largest wind park in the last ten years.

Vestas is expected to deliver, install and commission the turbines at the facility in 2017.

"The YEP project is a significant and symbolic development for South Korea’s renewable energy market."

Hanwha E&C general manager Jung Maeng Hwa said: "The YEP project is a significant and symbolic development for South Korea’s renewable energy market.

"We are pleased to partner with Vestas on the YEP project and convinced that Vestas’ vast knowledge of wind energy and their proven 3MW platform will ensure a strong business case throughout the project’s entire lifetime."

The second order has been placed for 45 of Vestas’ V110-2.0 MW turbines by an undisclosed client.

Under the contract, the firm is responsible for the supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines at the facility, which will be developed in the Brazilian state of Bahia.

Vestas plans to deliver the turbines for the project in the final quarter this year, following which commissioning is expected to be done in 2017.
