Vestas has confirmed that the DONG Energy has appointed Vestas as preferred supplier for the Burbo Bank Extension Offshore Wind Farm in the UK using V164-8.0MW turbines.
 
The choice of Vestas is subject to the windfarm being awarded a Contract for Difference under the EMR FID-enabling regime, and to the parties agreeing on a detailed supply agreement which is expected to be signed later this year. The Burbo Bank Extension Offshore Wind Farm has a maximum capacity of 258MW and is located 7 kilometres off the English west coast besides the existing Burbo Bank Offshore Wind Farm which has a capacity of 90MW. Based on the formal permits and timetable for the offshore wind farm it could potentially be built from second half of 2016. DONG Energy has not taken a final investment decision to build the offshore wind farm. This would be the first commercial order for the V164-8MW turbine.
