Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for 14 V117-3.45 MW wind turbines for the 48 MW Larimar II wind park, located in Enriquillo region of the Dominican Republic. The order was placed by Elecnor S.A.
The Larimar wind park is key to the country’s goal to increase the share of renewable energy in its energy mix and hereby reduce green-house gas emissions by 25 percent by 2030 compared to 2010.
The order comprises supply and installation of the 14 wind turbines for Larimar II, following the 49 MW Larimar I project, which Vestas installed two years ago. Wind turbines delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2018 whilst commissioning is expected for the third quarter of 2018.
With Larimar II fully operational, the Dominican Republic will host 131 MW of Vestas wind turbines, including Los Cocos wind park (25 MW, 2011), Quilvio Cabrera (8 MW, 2011) and Larimar I and II (98 MW in total, 2016 and 2018, expected).
