Vestas V155-3.3 MW wind turbine

Vestas, a leading wind turbine maker, has received a new 135 MW order from Ilmatar Energy for four projects in Finland. Vestas in June last year won a 221 MW order for another wind farm in Finland.

Vestas said the order includes the supply, installation, and commissioning of V162-6.2 MW and V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, delivered in various operating modes, for the four projects. It features a 35-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the three EnVentus projects, as well as one 30-year AOM 5000 for the fourth project site.

Juan Furones, Vice President for Vestas Sales North & West, said: “The four projects together will add another 135 MW of clean energy to the Finnish energy mix, supporting the country’s ambition towards a greener future.”

“The order plays a significant role in our strategy to become one of the leading Independent Power Producers in the Nordics,” says Juha Sarsama, CEO of Ilmatar Energy.

“Vestas has once again shown their excellent commitment and professionalism, which is important in this kind of complex portfolio structure,” says Antti Lehtinen, Head of Turbine Technology at Ilmatar Energy.

Vestas said deliveries and installation at the four sites are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2023, while commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2023.
