Vestas has received an order from power-energy company (CAPEC) Green Energy to supply 52MW of V112-3.45 MW turbines for the Astana wind project.

The windfarm will be built in Kazakhstan’s capital city Astana.

CAPEC Green Energy director Bagdat Oral said: “We have chosen to work with Vestas because their technology combines performance with reliability.

“Kazakhstan has great wind energy potential, and we are determined to contribute to the overall growth of renewable energy production in the country.”

“They have extensive experience in neighbouring markets, and they offer proven technology, especially for low-temperature climatic conditions. For us, Vestas is the optimal partner to develop our project.”

As part of the deal, Vestas will be responsible for supplying, installing and commissioning the turbines, as well as providing a full-scope service agreement (AOM 4000) and a VestasOnline Business supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) solution.

Once installed, the project will add another market to Vestas’ global footprint, which currently spans 76 markets.

Scheduled to begin in Q3 2018, the delivery includes both 3.3MW load optimised mode and standard 3.45MW rating wind turbines.

Vestas North and Central Europe president Nils de Baar said: “The Astana wind project marks an important step in further developing this promising wind market.

“Kazakhstan has great wind energy potential, and we are determined to contribute to the overall growth of renewable energy production in the country.

“We are very happy that CAPEC Green Energy chose Vestas, and we look forward to maximising their return on investment by offering a competitive cost of energy.”
