Vestas has received an order for the 228MW Lal Lal Wind Farm, located in Victoria, Australia, which is owned by a partnership comprising InfraRed Capital Partners, Macquarie Capital and Northleaf Capital.
The contract includes a 30-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. For the project, Vestas will supply, commission and service 60 V136-3.6 MW turbines, delivered in 3.8 MW power optimised mode and a hub height of 93 meters. Vestas will source 80 tower sections for the project from Victorian-based renewable energy components producer, Keppel Prince Engineering. The project will also feature radar-activated aviation lights, InteliLight. InteliLight delivers activation of the aviation lights when needed, while avoiding unnecessary continuous lighting. Turbine delivery is expected to commence in the 4th quarter of 2018 while commissioning is expected by third quarter of 2019.
