Vestas finishes 2011 with a 254 MW order in Brazil and 69 MW more in Sweden

Vestas has signed an agreement for a total capacity of 254 MW for projects in Brazil and 69 MW for the Swedish the wind power plant in Jädraås.
The Brazilian order comprises 127 units of the V100-2.0 MW for the following wind power complexes: Campos dos Ventos and São Benedito ? both of them located in Rio Grande do Norte in Brazil.

The order has been placed by CPFL Renováveis, a company originated from the merger between CPFL Energia´s renewable assets and ERSA Energias Renováveis. CPFL Renováveis is exclusively dedicated to the generation of energy from renewable sources, such as small hydro, wind farms and biomass. CPFL?s wind projects portfolio counts on 2 GW under operation, construction, preparation and development.

The contract includes delivery, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, a VestasOnline® Business SCADA system and a 10-year service contract with an AOM4000 solution. The AOM 4000 is a full-scope service contract, consisting of scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and consumables, which offers solid risk management for customers, who want an availability guarantee measured against an agreed threshold. This type of contract offers customers assured performance avoiding unforeseen operational costs of any kind.

Delivery of the turbines is expected to start in the first half of 2013 and the project is expected to be commercially operational during the first half of 2014.
?This agreement lays the foundations for a fruitful and collaborative relationship between Vestas and CPFL Renováveis for the years to come,? says Miguel Saad, CEO of CPFL Renováveis, who adds: ?We are pleased to award this project to Vestas, one of the most experienced wind technology provider worldwide?.

?It is with great pleasure we announce this order and we are pleased with the commitment and trust which CPFL Renováveis has shown us. CPFL Renováveis is one of the most important players in Brazil and we look forward to a continuous cooperation,? affirms Marcelo Anton Pegler Hutschinski, Director, sales region Brazil.

?Vestas is fully committed to help develop wind power in Brazil, as it supports the creation of a strong, diversified and high-quality supply chain contributing to continuously improving the industry as a whole, the products and solutions offered and the type of service provided to the market,? declares Miguel Picardo, General Manager, Vestas Brazil, Portugal and Spain and continues: ?Wind will help create jobs, develop new local competencies, encourage innovation and obtain benefit from economies of scale.?

?Vestas is continuously looking for opportunities to be more competitive, to be closer to the customers and the markets where we operate. This project represents a step forward for Vestas in our current expansion in the Latin American markets, specifically in Brazil," concludes Juan Araluce, President, Vestas Mediterranean

The wind power plant will produce approx 1,100 GWh per year, which corresponds to an annual emission saving of almost 98,000 tons of CO2 compared with average Brazilian electricity. Furthermore, it will provide enough electricity to cover the residential electricity consumption of more than 1.6 million people per year in Brazil.

On the other hand Vestas has received an order from a joint venture consisting of Arise Windpower AB and Platina Partners Ltd. for delivery of another 23 units of the V112-3.0 MW wind turbine to the Jädraås wind power park in Sweden.

On 6 October 2011, Vestas announced the first order for the project consisting of 43 V112-3.0 MW wind turbines with a total capacity of 129 MW together with a conditional 69 MW, which is announced firm and unconditional as of today.

Delivery of all 66 turbines for the Jädraås project is scheduled to be completed in the very beginning of 2013.
The contract includes supply, installation, commissioning of the turbines and a 15-year full scope Active Output Management agreement with a production-based availability warranty.

The V112-3.0 MW turbine was released for sale in August 2010. It is designed for low and medium wind speeds. Jädraås will be the first major Swedish power plant with V112-3.0 MW turbines.

When finally completed, the wind power plant in Jädraås is assessed to become Northern Europe?s largest, with an estimated yearly production of 570 GWh of renewable energy.
