Vestas wins 328 MW order for two wind projects in Australia
SINGAPORE, Nov. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

In partnership with Global Power Generation, a subsidiary of the multinational 
power company Naturgy Group, Vestas has secured a 328 MW deal for two wind 
projects in Victoria, Australia. The order includes supply and installation of 
52 V136-4.2 MW wind turbines for the Ryan Corner Wind Farm as well as the 
engineering, procurement and construction of 26 V136-4.2 MW wind turbines for 
the second stage of Berrybank Wind Farm.  

Both projects mark an important step towards building smarter, more liveable 
and emissions-free cities. In addition to this, the second stage of Berrybank 
Wind Farm is one of the successful projects under the Australian Capital 
Territory's 2019-20 renewable energy auction and will be Vestas' fifth 
Australian project to be initiated through a government renewable energy 
auction scheme.

Upon completion, Vestas will commence a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 
(AOM 5000) service agreement for both projects. With an energy-based 
availability guarantee, the service agreements will maximise energy production 
and provide Global Power Generation with long-term business case certainty.

"We are proud that customers from all around the world turn to Vestas for our 
leading technology, market experience, broad service solutions and ultimately, 
the best return on investment for their wind project", said Clive Turton, 
President of Vestas Asia Pacific. "Global Power Generation is a valued customer 
to Vestas globally and we look forward to building upon our existing 

"As a successful previous partner of the Australian Capital Territory's 
renewable energy auction, Vestas is pleased to deliver stage two of Berrybank 
Wind Farm and support the ACT's vision for a sustainable future", said Peter 
Cowling, Head of Vestas Australia and New Zealand. "Vestas is the largest 
installer and maintainer of wind generators in Australia. Our 327 MW 
partnership with Global Power Generation reinforces our commitment to 
Australia's clean energy transition".

"Global Power Generation is pleased to continue its partnership with Vestas as 
OEM of choice, and long-term maintenance service provider for Ryan Corner and 
Berrybank wind farms stage one and two", said Pedro Serrano, Chief Business 
Development Officer, Global Power Generation.

The two projects are set to provide clean energy to approximately 120,000 
homes. In addition, the projects will create almost 500 jobs during their 

Delivery of the turbines for both projects is expected to occur in the third 
quarter of 2021, with commissioning scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.
