Zephyr, a Norwegian developer, has placed a 197MW order with Vestas. BlackRock will be the long-term asset owner with Zephyr as the long-term asset partner on the project. The offtake from the project is backed by a 15-year corporate power purchase agreement (PPA) with aluminum producer Alcoa.
The project will consist of 47 V136-4.2 MW turbines for the Guleslettene wind project in Florø and Bremager in western Norway. The Guleslettene project will also be equipped with the Vestas Anti-Icing System. The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. Turbines delivery is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2020.
