Vestas has been awarded a contract to supply wind turbines to a project in Finland.

The Simo III wind farm is expected to have a capacity of 93MW. The Danish manufacturer claims it will be the largest wind project in the country.

It will deliver 27 turbines with a capacity of 3.45MW each. Vestas will also install and commission the blades under a 10-year agreement with delivery scheduled for 2016.

The wind project is owned by Finnish company TuuliWatti Oy.

Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe said: “With this project, we build on our strong collaboration with TuuliWatti Oy from previous record projects like the 73 MW Kalajoki wind farm, which was Finland’s very first large-scale wind power plant at the time of order.”
