Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order from LUKERG Renew, a joint venture between ERG Renew and LUKOIL, for 72 MW (with an option for another 12 MW) in Romania.

The 36-turbine order constitutes the first part of the Topolog wind project, which will consist of a total of 42 V90-2.0 MW wind turbines in Tulcea County. Delivery of the first 36 turbines is planned for the second half of this year. The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines, along with a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution.

“We are pleased to receive the Topolog order from LUKERG Renew,” says Thomas Richterich, president of Vestas Central Europe. “This wind energy project marks another important milestone in further developing the promising Romanian wind market, and we are happy to support our customer’s business case with our 30 years of wind energy experience and state-of-the-art wind energy solutions.”
