first_imgVestas wins turbine contract for Senegal’s first utility-scale wind farm FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renewable Energy Magazine:Vestas is providing a customised solution for the 159 MW Parc Eolien Taiba N’Diaye, Senegal’s first large utility-scale wind energy project and the largest wind project in West Africa. The wind farm will expand the country’s generation capacity by 15 percent, support the development of affordable renewable energy and diversify Senegal’s energy mix as well as provide positive social and economic impact for the nearby communities. The project is in advanced stage of development, ready for construction. Turbine delivery, as well as commissioning are planned to be accomplished in three phases: deliveries between the second and the third quarters of 2019, whilst commissioning between the third quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020.The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract was signed with Parc Eolien Taiba N’Diaye, a company majority-owned by Lekela, an experienced renewable energy company that has developed 1.3 GW of wind and solar projects across Africa, and partly-owned by French developer Sarreole that has been part of the project from its beginning.The order includes the supply, transport, installation and commissioning of 46 V126-3.45 MW turbines, as well as an Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the operation and maintenance of the wind park over the next 20 years.Senegal’s energy mix currently depends mainly on costly imported fossil fuels. However, Senegal will be able to utilise renewable energy to generate clean, reliable and competitively-priced energy to meet the demand of a rapidly expanding local grid.Chris Ford, chief operating officer at Lekela, added that, as the first utility-scale wind power project in the country, Taiba N’Diaye forms a critical component of Senegal’s clean energy strategy that will create an impact that lasts for generations.More: Vestas enters new market with 159 MW EPC order for the first large utility-scale wind project in Senegallast_img read more
