Vestas says it has received its largest-ever order in Finland from developer TuuliWatti Oy. The 99 MW deal is for two projects utilizing V126-3.3 MW turbines and featuring Vestas' Large Diameter Steel Towers (LDST), which the company says allow for taller hub heights and greater annual energy production at low wind speeds.

The order comprises the 73 MW Kalajoki project, which will be the first large-scale wind power plant in Finland. Delivery of the turbines will begin in the fourth quarter of this year, and the project is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2015.

Delivery of the 26 MW Siikainen project will begin in the third quarter of this year and is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2015.  Both projects include a VestasOnline Business SCADA system and a five-year Active Management Output (AOM) 5000 service agreement with options for two additional extensions of five years.
