With the establishment of an assembly factory and a record-high order intake of close to 600 MW in Argentina last year, Vestas is already playing a key role in helping the country’s ambitious targets for a more sustainable energy mix. Further underlining this leading position in Argentina’s growing wind energy market, Vestas has received a 106 MW order for two wind parks located nearby Bahia Blanca city in the Province of Buenos Aires.
The order is placed by Pampa Energía S.A. and includes supply and installation of 28 V136-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.8 MW Power Optimised Mode for Pampa and De La Bahía wind park that both have a total capacity of 53 MW. The order includes a 20-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement.
Turbine delivery is planned for the last quarter of 2018, whilst commissioning is expected for the first quarter of 2019.
Vestas and Pampa Energía S.A. have previously developed the 100 MW Corti wind park in the same region. The project is already constructed and will be inaugurated next Tuesday, 22 May.
