Vestas has won a 50 MW order to power Prime Capital’s Lappfjard Extension project in Kristinestad, Finland.

Vestas, a leading wind turbine maker, said in a news statement the order includes supply, installation, and commissioning of eight V162-6.2 MW turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

This order is an extension of the Lappfjard project, which was completed in the fourth quarter of 2022 and features 31 wind turbines of the same type, marking the first time Vestas deployed the V162-6.2 MW variant. Prime Capital completed wind farm Lappfjard with 31 EnVentus turbines.

“We are looking forward to extending our cooperation with Vestas on this project which will support the power supply to Prime Capital`s ambitious green hydrogen project in Kristinestad,”  Andreas Schmid, Head of Engineering at Prime Capital, said.

“The V162-6.2 MW EnVentus turbine was the perfect choice for Lappfjard, highlighted by the expansion with the same model, and the project also shows the mutual trust between Vestas and Prime Capital,” Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe, said.

Vestas said the delivery and installation of the wind turbines are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2023 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2023.
