* Project has secured $7.3 mln in public funding
* Sector races to build ever bigger turbines
HELSINKI, June 28 (Reuters) - Danish wind turbine maker
Vestas VWS.CO and offshore services firm Maersk Supply Service
are teaming up to tackle the cost of transporting and installing
ever larger wind turbines.
Seeking to remain profitable as European countries phase out
subsidies, the industry is turning to ever bigger turbines to
harness power more efficiently and respond to pricing pressure
for new equipment around the globe.
Vestas and fellow Danish company Maersk Supply Service,
part of A.P. Moller-Maersk MAERSKb.CO , said on Thursday the
initial focus of the partnership would be on developing a new
crane to manoeuvre and install mainly onshore but also offshore
wind turbines, some of which stand taller than skyscrapers.
"The challenge for the industry is that installation and
logistics around the turbines become a greater share of the
costs," Bo Svoldgaard, Vestas' head of innovation and concepts,
The crane will be developed with MHI Vestas, an offshore
wind joint venture between Vestas and Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy
Industries , Vestas said, adding that it has received 47
million Danish crowns ($7.3 million) in public funding.
Investment in new European wind farms and equipment is
forecast to rise 4 percent to 23.2 billion euros ($26.8 billion)
this year, according to WindEurope, after a shift to competitive
tender-based auctions led to a 19-percent decline last year.
Last year, MHI Vestas launched a 9.5 megawatts (MW) offshore
turbine, currently the world's most powerful wind turbine, but
bigger ones are expected in the future as their efficiency
increases with size.
General Electric GE.N , the world's fourth-largest wind
turbine maker, is working to develop a 12 MW turbine that will
stand 260 metres (853 feet) tall.
For Maersk Supply Service, the partnership could open up new
revenue streams outside the struggling oil service industry at a
time when the business is up for sale as part of Maersk's
transformation from conglomerate to a focused shipping firm.
A prototype of the crane is expected in the fourth quarter
next year, with production starting in two to three years,
Both companies declined to comment on the size of investment
into the new partnership.

Vestas secures 197 MW order in Norway from BlackRock and Zephyr
Underlining Vestas' ability to create solutions that meet a wide range of customers' different needs, Zephyr AS, a highly experienced Norwegian developer, has placed a 197 MW order with Vestas. BlackRock, who operates one of the largest renewable power investment platforms in the world, will be the long-term asset owner with Zephyr AS as the long-term asset partner on the project. The offtake from the project is backed by a 15-year corporate power purchase agreement (PPA) with the leading aluminum producer Alcoa
The project will consist of 47 V136-4.2 MW turbines for the Guleslettene wind project in Florø and Bremager in western Norway. Utilising the large rotor of the V136-4.2 MW turbines, the project optimises the cost of energy in a high wind location with challenging climatic conditions, which is often seen in Norway.The Guleslettene project will also be equipped with the Vestas Anti-Icing System™, which efficiently minimises ice formation on blades to maximize energy production in cold climates.
"The Guleslettene project once again demonstrates Vestas' ability to offer state-of-the-art technology and leverage our vast experience across the entire value chain to develop solutions that meet specific customer needs. We are very proud that our innovative technology will be able to create maximum value for BlackRock and Zephyr AS", says Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern and Central Europe.
The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. Turbines delivery is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2020.
Had gisteren mijn positie lichtjes uitgebreid, is nu een kleine 5% vd port (sprinter met hefboom 1,53). Zit op een schamele 1% winst voorlopig!
edit; wat me ook opviel was die 25 year service agreement? Dat heb ik nog niet (vaak) gezien. Meestal is dat voor 10-15 jaar ?
edit; eens nagekeken naar recent gewonnen orders. Onlangs zelfs 1tje met een 30year service!
Vestas to deliver 112 MW turnkey solution for Palisade’s Granville Harbour Wind Farm, will power more than 46,000 Tasmanian households
Hamburg, 12 July 2018
Long-term customer MK Fintel Wind a.d. Beograd has placed an order for 20 V126-3.45 MW turbines for the 69 MW Kosava I wind park in Serbia. To accommodate the site's specific wind conditions and maximise energy production while meeting the site's tip height constraints, Vestas developed a solution with site-specific towers.
Vestas has been active in Serbia since 2008 and the Kosava I project is Vestas' third project with MK Fintel in Serbia. The two previous wind parks MK Fintel and Vestas have partnered on, the Kula and La Piccolina wind parks, were the country's first operating wind power plants.
"Kosava Phase I is to date our biggest single wind development and it is also the third project in a row with Vestas. We look forward to complete it and immediately start working on Kosava Phase II and on the many other projects of our ambitious pipeline in the Balkans and in Russia, hopefully consolidating our partnership with Vestas," states Tiziano Giovannetti, CEO of MK Fintel.
"The key to this project was our capability to develop a site-specific solution using tailored towers. With the largest order to date between MK Fintel and Vestas in Serbia, we are delighted to reaffirm our strong and long-standing relationship," says Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern and Central Europe.
The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 12-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement. Delivery of the wind turbines is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2018, while commissioning is expected in the first quarter of 2019.
