In partnership with Tokyu Land Corporation and Japan Wind Development, Vestas has secured a 76MW order for Chitose Wind Farm and Noheji Mutsuwan Wind Farm in the Aomori prefecture of Japan. The order includes the supply and supervision of four V117-3.45 MW and six V105-3.45 MW turbines that are all delivered in 3.6 MW power mode at Chitose Wind Farm, as well as eleven V105-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW power mode at Noheji Mutsuwan Wind Farm.
Due to the typhoon and earthquake prone environment of the region, extended collaboration between all project partners was required when designing a turbine solution to maximise wind capture in the sites’ challenging wind and weather conditions. All turbines will feature customised 94 metres towers to accommodate seismic loads, high turbulence and extreme windspeeds.
Vestas will also provide multi-year service agreements for both wind farms. Delivery of Vestas’ turbines will begin in the first quarter of 2021 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2021.
