Following the recent 252 MW EPC order from Vivid Solaire Energy Pvt. Ltd., the order reaffirms the Indian market’s confidence in Vestas’ EPC competencies.

Upon completion of the project, Vestas will commence a 15-year full scope Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement as well as a Vestas Online® Business SCADA solution.

“Continuum has enjoyed its relationship with Vestas and looks forward to deploying their latest offering of V120-2.2 MW turbines in India for the first phase of 101MW of the 350 MW project. Vestas’ offering will help us provide high quality and reliable service to our prestigious commercial and industrial customers in Gujarat. We are encouraged by the increasing interest of commercial and industrial customers in purchasing renewable energy”, said Arvind Bansal, CEO of Continuum Wind Energy.

“We are very excited to start the year with an EPC order in India; this showcases the confidence and trust that our customers have in our capabilities across the full range of projects. We will be working closely with our partners to help India meet its renewable energy needs while enhancing the Indian wind energy sector by providing long-term job opportunities as well as low-cost energy to the local community”, said Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific.

Turbine delivery is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2019 and commissioning is expected by second quarter of 2019.
