Vestas has won a turbine supply contract from DTEK Renewables for the 126MW Tiligulska wind power project in , as announced by the company on 1 March 2021.

The Danish wind turbine manufacturer said that the Tiligulska wind farm marks the first order for its EnVentus turbine technology platform in the Eastern Europe region.

Construction on the Tiligulska wind power project located in the Mykolaiv Region has been launched by DTEK Renewables, which is developing it through its subsidiary – Tiligulska Wind Electric Plant.

The Tiligulska wind power project is expected to be fully operational in Q2 2022.

As per the contract, Vestas will supply, install and commission 21 of its V162-6.0 MW wind turbines. The contract includes a long-term 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement to ensure optimal power production throughout the lifetime of the wind farm in Ukraine.

The V162-6.0 MW turbines are said to have a swept area of over 20,000m².

– President of Vestas Northern & Central Europe said: “Further highlighting the global applicability of the EnVentus platform, we’re proud to secure this first order for EnVentus turbines in the Eastern Europe region, and proud to be partnering with DTEK Renewables for their Tiligulska project.

“The delivery of Ukraine’s first V162-6.0 MW turbines will be critical to the continued cost reduction for reliable, sustainable wind energy in the country and we’re pleased to be working with DTEK Renewables to accomplish that vision”.

So far, the Danish wind turbine manufacturer had installed 660MW wind turbines in Ukraine. Prior to the Tiligulska wind power project, Vestas had worked with DTEK Renewables on three wind projects in Ukraine – which include the 90MW Botievska I and 110MW Botievska II projects, and the 100MW Orlivska project.

The Tiligulska wind farm is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 504,000 tons annually. Furthermore, there is a possibility to increase the capacity of the wind farm to 564MW, if needed.

– CEO of DTEK Renewables said: “We are happy to present our new ambitious project with Vestas. For DTEK, Tiligulska WPP is a quality milestone, a proof of our growing expertise and our commitment to European values of Green transition.

“With the experience we have gained with our previous projects we have built a professional team, we choose the most innovative electrical equipment, and ensured the successful integration of the wind into the energy system.”
