Vestas to supply 15 turbines to Florida II

By Editor


Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas is to supply 15 of its V117, 3.3-megawatt turbines for the Florida II project in Uruguay.

Glymont, a joint venture between Akuo Energy and Eurus Energy America, has placed the order for the turbines with Vestas.

Vestas will be supplying, installing and commissioning the units in accordance with the terms of the agreement.

The agreement also includes the 10-year Active Output Management 4000 service agreement of Vestas. The project would be equipped with Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system of Vestas which helps optimize electricity output.

The wind energy company will begin delivery of the turbines from the first quarter of next year. And the project is expected to be commissioned in the third quarter of 2016.

Uruguay’s state-owned utility UTE has signed a power purchase agreement to evacuate output from Florida II. The project is an extension of the Florida I wind farm, which Akuo Energy developed two years ago.
