Vestas has received an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) order for the 45 MW Al Shobak Wind Farm to be located in the Ma'an governorate within the district of Shobak in southern Jordan.
The EPC contract includes supply, transport, installation and commissioning of thirteen V136-3.45 MW turbines, specifically designed to optimise energy production in low and medium wind conditions. The order is placed by new customer Shobak Wind Energy PSC, a majority owned subsidiary of Alcazar Energy, a Dubai-based independent developer and power producer focused on renewable energy generation in the META region (Broader Middle East, Turkey and Africa). The order includes an Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement, under which Vestas will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the wind park over the next five years. Turbine delivery is planned for the second quarter of 2019, whilst commissioning is expected by the end of the same year.
