This order covers the supply, installation and commissioning 11 V126-3.45MW turbines operating in 3.6MW mode. These will replace the existing legacy wind turbines. This order demonstrates how more efficient and new technology can replace older assets. It also makes it possible to make a strong business case for the repowering of aging wind farms.
