Marking its entrance into the Latvian wind market, Vestas has secured a 59MW order at the Targale wind project from a special purpose company majority owned by Utilitas, the Estonian utility provider.
The Targale project is located in Ventspils municipality in western Latvia, and will be powered by 14 V136-4.2 MW turbines at a hub height of 82 metres. Vestas will supply and install turbines, and will provide service for the project through a 20-year service agreement. Turbine delivery to the Targale project will commence in the second quarter of 2022, and commissioning will begin in the third quarter of the same year. Plans are also underway to establish a local Vestas service hub in Latvia in 2022, near Ventspils port.
