Vestas sells first turbine to Ukraine

UKRAINE: Vestas has sold a V112 3MW turbine to a Ukrainian wind developer, the manufacturer's first sale in the country.

The turbine will go to the Novorossiske project, in the Kherson region in southern Ukraine. The turbine has been acquired by Vindkraft Ukraina.

Vindkraft’s managing partner, Fredrik Svinhufvud said: "We set the goal of being one of the first private wind-farm operators in Ukraine in order to demonstrate that this technology has a bright future here."

Vestas is not the first manufacturer to seal a turbine deal in the Ukraine. Furhlander is developing the 25MW Novoazovskiy project in the Donetsk region near the Azov Sea.

Novoazovskiy is the first Ukrainian project to use MW-class turbines. Fuhrlander is also planning to build a factory in the country.
