Vestas has received a 104 MW order for the Pinta y Guindalera wind park, to be located in Valladolid, Castilla y León, Spain. The contract includes the supply and installation of 23 V150-4.5 MW wind turbines, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management (AOM 4000) service agreement.

The order has been placed by renewable energy producer Estudios y Proyectos Pradamap, SLU (Grupo Vapat). The company has developed 650 MW of wind power plants, which are currently in operation in Spain. At present, Grupo Vapat is developing 1,000 MW of additional renewable capacity in the country.

Building on the commercial success of the V150-4.2 MW wind turbine, the V150-4.5 MW delivers an increased annual energy production with an expanded global market applicability.

“We would like to thank Pradamap (Grupo Vapat) for the trust placed in Vestas 4MW platform and one of its latest models. Its full converter technology provides our customers with the reliability they need to to operate in the Spanish grid, marked by an increasing participation of renewable sources”, says Agustín Sánchez-Tembleque, Vestas General Manager Spain & Portugal.

Turbine delivery and commissioning are expected in 2023.

The project will also benefit from Vestas’ strong footprint in Spain. The company manufactures V150 blades at its blade factory in Daimiel (Ciudad Real), both for the 4 MW and the EnVentus platforms. Since 1991, when Vestas installed its first wind turbine in Spain, the company has achieved over 5 GW of installed capacity, corresponding to 130 wind parks in the country.
