Vestas has signed a framework agreement with German wind power plant developer juwi for 75 units of Vestas' 3MW platform, with an order for 21MW now firm and unconditional.
Under the firm and unconditional order, Vestas will supply seven V112-3.0 MW turbines to be installed in Rhineland-Palatinate during the third quarter of 2014.
The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, along with a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, as well as a 15-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 4000).
Vestas expects to deliver and install the remainder of the machines from the framework agreement within 2014 at sites in western, central and southern Germany.
The new frame agreement and order follows the successful completion of a previous agreement for 47 wind turbines, signed in 2012.
juwi founder and board member Matthias Willenbacher said: "We are pleased to contribute further to the development of wind power energy in Germany with this agreement. Vestas' advanced wind turbines enable us to offer our various customers reliable technology for sustainable energy production. Together with juwi and Vestas, regional utilities, and citizen cooperatives are able to contribute in an economically meaningful way to the energy turnaround."
In August 2010, Vestas released the first wind turbine in its new 3MW platform, the V112-3.0 MW turbine.
