Vestas has received a 106.8 MW order in Australia and an 87 MW order in the Phillipines.

Taralga Wind Farm Nominees No.1 Pty. Ltd., a joint venture between Spanish banking group Banco Santander S.A. and Sydney-based developer CBD Energy Ltd., has contracted with Vestas to supply 51 turbines to the Taralga Wind Farm in New South Wales, Australia.

The 106.8 MW order is made up of a combination of V90-2.0 MW, V100-1.8 MW and V90-3.0 MW models and includes an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract plus an initial five-year AOM 4000 service agreement.

In addition, Vestas has received an order from Energy Development Corp. (EDC) to deliver an 87 MW wind power plant in the Phillipines under an EPC contract. The order comprises installation of 29 units of the V90-3.0 MW turbine together with associated on-site civil and electrical works at the Burgos wind farm.

The wind turbines are expected to be commissioned at Burgos in the second half of 2014. The project will then be operated under a Vestas 10-year AOM5000 service contract.
