The order includes 60 V136-3.0 MW turbines that will be the first of their kind in Asia Pacific. With a hub height of 157 meters, the wind park will feature the highest towers in the region to date.

The firm and unconditional order is placed by new customer, Wind Energy Holding, and is for the T2 Tropical Wind Farm and T3 KRS Three Wind Farm in the Nakhon Ratchasima and Chaiyaphum provinces of northeast Thailand.

The order includes supply and installation of the turbines as well as a 15-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service contract in which Vestas guarantees a defined high level of availability and performance. It also includes VestasOnlineฎ Business, our unique SCADA system for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance.

"Reaching financial close for our T2 and T3 projects represents another key step for Wind Energy Holding in our goal of becoming a leading global renewable energy player. We are also excited to play a significant part in Thailand's renewable energy push. We believe Vestas will be a key partner for us going forward", said Nop Narongdej, Chairman of the Executive Committee, Wind Energy Holding.

"Vestas with their leading low wind technology was our preferred partner for these projects. Their turbine offering allows us to maximise energy production at our T2 and T3 sites and in turn maximise our overall project returns. We look forward to future collaborations with Vestas", said Emma Collins, CEO, Wind Energy Holding.

"Wind Energy Holding is the largest wind park operator in South East Asia and their choice of Vestas and our V136-3.0 MW turbine is a great testament to our strong offering in Thailand. With our proven track record in the region and ability to provide customised solutions for Thailand's low wind conditions, we offer the low cost of energy and business case certainty that the market demands", said Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific.

Turbine delivery is expected to start in late 2017, with commissioning in mid-2018.
