URUGUAY: Vestas has been handed the contract by developer Taxway SA to supply 16 V112-3MW turbines to the 49MW Kiyu wind project.

Vestas will produce 16 V112-3MW turbines for the Kiyu project

Delivery of the turbines is due to take place early next year with project completion expected by the end of 2015. The contract also includes a five year servicing deal. Taxway is a wholly owned subsidiary of Spanish power supplier Grupo Cobra.

The project is located in southern Uruguay close to the Uruguayan capital Montevideo.

A year ago today, the Danish turbine manufacturer announced a deal to supply the V112-3MW turbines to the 50MW Carape project in Uruguay, developed by Fingano.

Vestas has supplied over 140MW to Uruguayan projects after installing its first turbine in 2008.
