Vestas has won a supply deal for wind turbines at the 49.5MW Larimar wind farm in the Dominican Republic.
The contract is with Spain-based Grupo Cobra to supply 15 V112 3.3MW machines in the second quarter of 2015 and commissioned by the first quarter of 2016.
Once completed, Larimar will produce approximately 227,000MWh per year and is being developed under a strategy by the Dominican Republic to reduce its overall dependence on fossil-fuel imports.
In 2011, Vestas installed the first large-scale wind power plant in the Dominican Republic at Juancho Los Cocos. The Larimar deal is the second contract the company has inked with Grupo Cobra since September, 2014.
Grupo Cobra executive director Pedro Cuevas said: “We are delighted to have strengthened our partnership with Vestas through this new deal. We expect the Larimar wind power plant to take wind energy a step further in this country.”
