    South African power producer Red Rocket orders turbines from Vestas

    March 14, 2023 - dpa


      Copenhagen — Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S swooped up a 373 MW order from Red Rocket for the Brandvalley, Rietkloof, and Wolf wind parks, to be located in Western Cape and Eastern Cape, South Africa, Vestas said on Tuesday.

      Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

      "The projects will bring a 740-million-rand [$40.9-million] community investment over 20 years through local social projects. The wind farms will start operating in 2024," said Red Rocket chief executive Matteo Brambilla.

      The contract includes the supply and installation of 64 V150-4.5 MW, 12 V163-4.5 MW wind turbines, and five V162-6.2 MW Enventus wind turbines.

      Vestas will service the wind parks through a 15-year active output management 5,000 deal. The Danish firm is serving the South African wind power market with over 1.3 GW of capacity either installed or under construction.
