The 600 MW firm and unconditional service contract is a customised and flexible solution covering all 250 wind towers over twelve Hanas power plants in Yanchi County of northwestern China’s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
Since Hanas entered the wind power market in 2011, Vestas has been its exclusive turbine supplier. The Hanas fleet of Vestas turbines totals 600 MW of installed capacity, with several hundred additional MW currently under construction.
The service order comprises a one-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service agreement and a four-year Portfolio Support agreement, which is a flexible Vestas service offering tailor-made to meet specific customer needs.
Mr Ma Fuqiang, President of Hanas Group, notes that “The cooperation and mutual trust between Hanas and Vestas is entering into a new stage with the signing of this customised service contract. It is essential for us to work with companies like Vestas, which is known for its innovative and ground-breaking solutions as well as its proven know-how and solid experience. The service agreement will enable us to improve energy production, enhance service quality, and grow our own service capabilities to a world class quality, hence, reduce the overall cost of energy, extend turbine lifetime and ensure our return of investment”.
President of Vestas Asia Pacific and China, Chris Beaufait, commented “We look forward to continuing the long-term partnership with Hanas Group and to helping them lower the cost of energy through these tailor-made service solutions.”
Vestas has delivered wind energy in 75 countries, with 20,500 personnel all over the world. Wind power from more than 56,800 Vestas wind turbines currently reduces carbon emissions by over 78 million tons of carbon dioxide every year. With over 73 GW of cumulative installed capacity and over 15% of the worldwide wind turbine fleet, Vestas is the world leader in wind energy.
Digital Tsunami produced a video in 2015 dramatically capturing the towers of one Hanas wind farm, in time-lapse sequences and 4K aerials shot from a UAV. We were pleased when this video was screened to the head of Vestas, China and the Danish Ambassador to China, during their visit to Hanas in Yinchuan.
