Vestas has announced two new wind deals: a 48 MW order in China and a 42 MW contract in Germany.

Hebei Construction and Investment Group (HECIC), an infrastructure construction corporation in Hebei province, China, has ordered 24 V100-2.0 MW wind turbines. Vestas notes this is its third supply agreement in China for the low-wind machine. The turbines will be installed in Changli Datan, where the average wind speed is as low as 6 m/sec., according to Vestas.

The deal comprises turbine supply and delivery, installation supervision, the VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, and a standard two-year service agreement. The contract does not include towers. Delivery of the first wind turbine is expected to start in the first quarter of 2014.

Separately, Vestas has won a 42 MW order from Bordelum III GmbH & Co. KG for what the turbine maker says is one of the largest citizen-owned wind power plants in Germany.

The 14 V112-3.0 MW turbines will be installed in Bordelum at the west coast of Schleswig-Holstein. Turbine delivery is planned to start in the fourth quarter of this year, and commissioning is expected to begin in the first half of 2014.

The contract comprises supply, installation and commissioning of the turbines, along with a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution and a 15-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 4000).
