    Vestas secures 81 MW order to expand the Llano wind complex in Argentina


    May 5, 2022 - Cision

     

      News release from Vestas Latin America

      São Paulo, 5 May 2022

      Vestas has received an order from Aluar Aluminio Argentino S.A.I.C for the 81 MW Llano IV Wind Farm in the province of Chubut in Argentina. The project will feature 18 V150-4.5 MW which Vestas will supply and install.

      Upon completion, Vestas will also deliver a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. This agreement will optimise energy production while also providing long-term business case certainty.

      The El Llano wind complex will provide renewable electricity for Aluar's aluminium smelting facilities in Puerto Madryn, the largest in the country and will help Aluar meet the requirement from the Argentinian authorities for large electricity consumers to get a percentage of their consumption from renewable sources.

      "Vestas is pleased to grow our partnership with Aluar, one of the largest aluminium smelters in South America, who, as Vestas, has a strong commitment to Argentina's energy transition". says Sales Senior Director for Vestas LATAM South Cone, Andrés Gismondi. "This order materialises the third expansion of the El Llano wind complex that will soon have a total of 246 MW of sustainable energy coming from Vestas´s turbines to power Aluar's aluminium smelting facilities in Puerto Madryn. This underlines how Vestas´ solutions can support energy-intensive industries to accelerate their energy transition by powering their operations with cost-efficient and sustainable energy".

      Turbine delivery is planned for the fourth quarter of 2022, whilst commissioning is expected for the third quarter of 2023.
