Vestas gets 70 MW order in Uruguay
COPENHAGEN, Sept 3 (Reuters) - Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems said on Thursday it had received a 70 megawatt turbine order for a wind project in Uruguay.
The order was for 35 units of the V110-2.0 MW turbine for the Palomas Wind Farm project in Departamento de Salto, Vestas said in a stock exchange announcement.
The contract includes delivery, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 10 year service agreement, Vestas said.
Installation of the first turbines is expected to start in the first quarter of 2016 and the project is due to be completed by the second quarter of the same year.
In general, wind turbine orders give Vestas revenue of around 0.86 million euros per megawatt on average.
Wind turbine orders with a value above 500 million Danish crowns ($75.61 million) are disclosed by Vestas as stock exchange announcements, while smaller ones are published as press releases on its website.
