The V164 prototype

Dong Energy has named Vestas' 8MW V164 turbine as its preferred choice for its Burbo Bank Extension project in the UK.

The announcement is a big boost for Vestas and its newly-formed JV with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, which is competing with the likes of Siemens, Areva and Alstom for European offshore orders for the giant new turbine.

Dong said its choice of Vestas as preferred supplier is conditional on the project, planned at 258MW, being granted a contract for difference (CfD) under the UK’s new support arrangements, and on a detailed supply agreement being reached with its Danish compatriot.

Burbo Bank Extension will be built adjacent to the existing 90MW Burbo Bank wind farm Log in to read complete article.
