Vestas signed a contract with Enefit Green to build an 87-megawatt wind farm in Lithuania
Vestas has received a firm order from UAB Vejoteka, owned by Enefit Green, for the Kelme 2 wind farm project in Lithuania.
The order consists of 14 V162-6.2 MW wind turbines and includes supply, delivery, and commissioning of the turbines. Upon completion, Vestas will service the turbines under a 35-years Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement designed to ensure optimised performance of the assets.
“I am pleased that our collaboration with Enefit Green across the Baltic states continues and is now spanning from Estonia to Lithuania,” states Jens Pinderup, Vice President Sales East at Vestas NCE. “The entire area offers huge potential for wind energy projects, and we are proud that our EnVentus wind turbines offers a competitive solution for our customers while helping to decarbonise the energy system in the Baltic region.”
“Enefit Green is delighted to be working together with Vestas in Lithuania to deliver the Kelme II wind farm project, after our successful collaboration with Vestas in the delivery of the 21 MW Purtse wind farm in Estonia earlier this year,” says Enefit Green Board Member, Andres Maasing. “Vestas’ EnVentus wind turbine provides a very good solution for our Kelme 2 wind farm and we hope that we can continue to use this and other Vestas’ technologies on our other development projects across the Baltics and Poland in the future. This is just a second step in what looks to become a long-term fruitful relationship for both Vestas and Enefit Green.” The output of the Kelme 2 wind farm will provide carbon-free electricity for Lithuania and its neighbours and help keep electricity affordable. Alongside the Kelme 1 wind farm, which is already under construction, Kelme 2 will provide the region with nearly 580 GWh of renewable electricity.
Turbine delivery is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2025 with commissioning scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2025.
