Vestas has received an order for a total of 111 units of V90-1.8/2.0 MW turbines for the Collgar project in Australia. The site is located approximately 25 kilometres southeast of Merredin in Western Australia.
The order has been placed by Collgar Wind Farm Pty Ltd which was developed by Investec Bank (Australia) Limited and now acquired by UBS International Infrastructure Fund, managed by UBS Global Asset Management, and Australia's Retail Employees Superannuation Trust (REST). The contract comprises a full engineering procurement construction contract, a ten-year service agreement and a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution. The first turbines are expected on site during Q2 and Q3 2010 with the whole project expected fully installed by the second half of 2012.
