Vestas will install Sri Lanka’s first large scale wind park, the 104MW Mannar Wind Power Project. The order includes Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and is placed by Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), the main utility company of Sri Lanka.
The order represents the first large scale wind project ever planned in the country as previous projects were in the range of 10 to 15 MW. The project was conceived by CEB and is fully funded by Asian Development Bank (ADB). Located on Mannar Island in Sri Lanka, Vestas will provide the Mannar Wind Power Project Phase 1 with delivery, installation and commissioning of 30 V126-3.45MW wind turbines, as well as civil and electrical work. The project will also include full scope service agreement. Construction activities are expected to commence in the first quarter of 2019, and the project is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2020.
