Vestas will supply a consortium of EDF Renewables and Masdar with 99 turbines for Saudi Arabia’s first utility-scale wind farm. It will provide its V150-4.2MW turbine for the developers’ 415MW Dumat Al Jandal wind farm in the southerly Al Jouf region.
The Danish manufacturer will build the project on an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis, supply and install its turbines, and also service the site for 20 years, according to windpowermonthly.com.
Once operational, Dumat Al Jandal will provide the Saudi Power Procurement Company with output under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
EDF Renewables and Masdar won the project in the country’s first wind power tender in July 2018.
