Vestas will supply 15 V112-3.3MW offshore turbines for the Kentish Flats Extension off the coast of the U.K. Kentish Flats, owned by Vattenfall, was installed by Vestas in 2005. It currently consists of 30 V90-3.0MW turbines, which Vestas services.

The order with a total capacity of 50MW includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines as well as a five-year AOM 5000 service agreement.

Ole Bigum Nielsen, Head of Project Execution at Vattenfall, U.K., says: "We are pleased to have confirmed Vestas for turbine supply to Vattenfall’ s Kentish Flats Extension, particularly as Vestas and Vattenfall will work closely to maximise, where we can, contracting with the local supply chain in Kent for this significant investment."

The Kentish Flats Extension is located approximately 10km north off Herne Bay and Whitstable in Kent. The construction of the project will begin mid-2015. The existing wind farm and the extension will combined  be capable of generating between 350,000MWh and just over 430,000MWh of clean electricity every year, which is equivalent to the total annual electricity needs of between 82,000 to 96,000 U.K. households.

Uffe Vinther-Schou, Senior Vice President at Vestas Offshore says:  “We are very pleased that Vattenfall acknowledges the strong business case of the new V112-3.3MW turbine for offshore deployment and look forward to continuing building on our close collaboration including the long-standing service set-up in Kent with the current Kentish Flats wind farm and the Thanet wind farm.“

It is Vestas’ first order with the 3.3MW version of the V112 offshore turbine.
