São Paulo, 30 March 2023
Vestas has secured a 162 MW order for the La Elbita project in the Province of Buenos Aires, in Argentina.
The project will feature 36 V150-4.5 MW wind turbines which Vestas will supply and install. Upon completion, Vestas will also deliver a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. This agreement will optimise energy production while also providing long-term business case certainty.
"We are delighted to work again together with Genneia to start this project and contribute to accelerating the decarbonisation of the country's energy matrix. In the same way, we are proud to know that foreign capital is willing to invest in the development of wind farms in Argentina and that they trust the experience of Vestas and Genneia to promote the local energy transition", says the Sales Vice President of Vestas LATAM Southern Cone, Andrés Gismondi.
"We are also very proud to work with Vestas in this challenging Project, La Elbita, because both companies offer sustainable and efficient energy solutions aligned with our commitment to a decarbonised economy and to the climate change fight" says Gustavo Castagnino, Corporate Affairs and ESG Director at Genneia.
Turbine delivery is planned for the third quarter of 2023, whilst commissioning is expected for the second quarter of 2024.
Vestas pioneered Argentina's wind energy market with the installation of the country's first commercial wind turbine in Comodoro Rivadavia in 1994.
