By Editor


Vestas has received a firm order from First Look Solutions, a subsidiary of Rezolv Energy and Low Carbon, to deliver EPC solution for the 192 MW Vifor project in south-eastern Romania.

Vestas has revealed that the order includes 30 V162-6.2 MW turbines of the EnVentus platform running in a 6.4 MW operating mode. Aside from supply, delivery, and commissioning of the turbines, Vestas is also responsible for the project’s civil and electrical works.

Vestas said it will provide service for the project through a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, providing power performance certainty throughout the lifetime of the project. Vestas did not reveal financial details of the contract.

“Vifor will become one of the largest onshore wind projects in the region, contributing significantly to Romania’s energy transition ambitions,” states Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern and Central Europe.

Alastair Hammond, CEO, Rezolv Energy, said: “The VIFOR wind farm will play a significant role in reducing Romania’s dependence on fossil fuels, enhancing the country’s energy security and improving air quality.”

The Vifor wind power project, located in Buzau County north-east of Bucharest, consists of two construction phases. Vestas has won the contract for the phase one of the wind energy project. Vestas says deliveries are expected to begin in early 2025, with commissioning planned before the end of 2025.
