Vestas has received a 38 MW order from the utility Finnmark Kraft AS for the repowering of Havøygavlen Wind Park on the island of Havøy in northern Norway. Located deep inside the arctic circle, with extreme climate conditions, this project consists of nine V117-4.2MW Typhoon variant turbines, with customised design to cope with the site’s average wind speeds that exceeds 9.0 m/s.
The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the nine turbines, as well as a 30-year service agreement. Turbine delivery is scheduled for the second and third quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of 2021. The nine Vestas turbines will replace 15 Nordex N80-2.5 MW turbines.
