Honduras is getting 59 MW of wind in 2017. Vestas is entering the Honduras market – its second new market in 2016 – with firm and unconditional orders of 59 MW of V117-3.45 MW. Turbine delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2017, while commissioning is expected for the fourth quarter of 2017.
Both orders are Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts that include the supply and installation of the wind turbines as well as the electrical and civil works, substation, and access roads. Additionally, a 15-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 5000) will ensure optimal performance of the wind turbines.
“Supplying wind turbines and service solutions are only part of our business, and getting these two Engineering, Procurement and Construction contracts in Honduras, which becomes Vestas’ second new market in 2016, demonstrates Vestas’ ability to meet customers’ wind energy needs anywhere in the world”, highlights President of Vestas Mediterranean, Marco Graziano.
