Vestas has secured a 23 MW order in Finland, the first order in the country to feature the Vestas De-icing System on the V126 turbine.

The order for seven V126-3.3 MW turbines has been placed by E-Group for the Posio I project in Posio, Lappland and Kuusamo, Northern Ostrobothnia. Turbine delivery is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2016.
The contract includes delivery, installation and commissioning of the turbines, a 10-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement, VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution and the Vestas De-icing System. The De-icing system can help prevent ice build-up on the turbine blades by using an ice detection system and a hot air flow unit within the blades.

“The Posio I order marks the first time that we will be working on a project with E-Group and it underlines our strong position in the Finnish market”, says Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe. “We are very pleased that E-Group has chosen to work with us on their project and that the De-icing System will be used on the V126 turbine”, Mortensen says.
