Vestas will supply 15 V112-3.3 MW offshore turbines for the Kentish Flats Extension off the coast of the U.K. Kentish Flats, owned by Vattenfall, was installed by Vestas in 2005. It currently consists of 30 V90-3.0 MW turbines, which Vestas services.

Vestas says the order, with a total capacity of 50 MW, is its first for the 3.3 MW version of the V112 offshore turbine. The deal includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a five-year AOM 5000 service agreement.

The Kentish Flats Extension is located approximately 10 km north off Herne Bay and Whitstable in Kent. Construction of the project will begin mid-2015.
