With reference to the Vestas Wind Systems A/S’ company announcement No. 11/2013 of 29 March 2013, Vestas is pleased to announce another sale in the key emerging market of Ukraine. The DTEK Group has ordered 35 V112-3.0 MW turbines that constitute the second stage of the Botievo project, located in the coastal area of the Zaporozhye region, near the village of Botievo. The wind power plant will have a capacity of 195 MW when completed and will be the largest wind power plant in Ukraine.

The turbines are planned to be delivered at the end of 2013 and are scheduled to be commissioned in the summer of 2014.

“The construction of a wind power plant of such size requires selecting the best suppliers of wind power equipment,” states Guerman Ainbinder, Director of Wind Power LLC, who is part of the DTEK Group. “We are glad to continue our cooperation with Vestas, a global leader in wind turbine manufacturing.

“We are happy that DTEK demonstrates full confidence in the quality of our partnership and technology and the business case certainty we offer. Vestas is proud to be part of the Botievo II and to be chosen as supplier for another 35 high-performing V112-3.0 MW turbines for this wind power plant – the largest one in Ukraine”, says Thomas Richterich, President of Vestas Central Europe. ”We are proud to be DTEKs partner and to support their vision to further develop the promising Ukrainian wind market.”
