Delivery and commissioning of the wind turbines is scheduled for 2023. The project will also benefit from Vestas' strong presence in Spain. The company manufactures V150 blades at its Daimiel (Ciudad Real) factory, both for the four megawatt (4 MW) machines and for the EnVentus platform. Since 1991, when Vestas installed its first wind turbine in Spain, the company has accumulated more than 5,000 megawatts of installed capacity and more than 130 wind farms in the country. The order was placed by Estudios y Proyectos Pradamap SLU (Vapat Group). The company has developed 650 MW of wind farms in Spain, all of which are currently in operation. In parallel, Vestas reports, Grupo Vapat is developing an additional 1,000 megawatts of renewable capacity in the country.
Agustín Sánchez-Tembleque, general manager of Vestas Spain and Portugal: "We would like to thank Pradamap (Vapat Group) for their confidence in Vestas' 4 MW platform and one of its latest models. Its full converter technology provides our customers with the reliability they need to operate in the Spanish grid, marked by an increasing participation of renewable energy sources".
The V150-4.5 MW model, which follows on - Vestas explains - from the commercial success of the V150-4.2 MW wind turbine, offers an increase of more than 3% in annual energy production compared to the previous variant.
