The wind turbine order was placed by Global Wind Power, and the contract includes delivery, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution as well as a five year-service agreement, Vestas says.

Installation of the wind turbines will start in 2010 and the projects are expected to be commissioned during 2010.

Global Wind Power implemented four wind power projects in Bulgaria with a total capacity of 52 MW – all of them with Vestas wind turbines in 2008 and 2009.

“We have a very good working experience with Vestas all over Europe, and so far, we have only been using Vestas turbines for our projects. The order is a direct result of our newly launched Business Plan 2009-2012. We are confident that these projects will also be a big success and we look forward to realising the order together with our trustworthy business partner,” says Henrik Amby Jensen, CEO of Global Wind Power.
