Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) said today it has won a 72-MW order in Sweden for its V136-3.45 MW turbine.

The contract was awarded by Vestas’ long-term client Stena Renewable AB, the Danish manufacturer said in a press release, adding that to date it has announced over 740 MW of contracts in Sweden for V136-3.45 MW.

Vestas will supply, install and commission 16 units of the V136-3.45 MW turbines with 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode specifically increased to 3.8 MW for the Kronoberget wind farm, as well as three V136-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode for the Fjaellberget plant. Both wind parks will be located in southern Sweden.

Vestas expects to start delivering the equipment in the second quarter of 2019, with commissioning slated for the third quarter of the same year.

Stena Renewable's contract also includes a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

The Danish wind turbine manufacturer has installed 90 GW of wind turbine capacity globally, it said. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF), it was the leader on the global onshore wind market last year, with deployments of 7.7 GW and a 16% market share.
