SSE RENEWABLES, the owner and developer of the Shetland-based Viking Wind Farm has named Vestas as supplier of the turbines. The deal means Viking will be Danish firm Vestas’ largest stand-alone onshore wind farm order in Europe to date. The Vestas turbine contract award follows the decision in June by Perth-based SSE Renewables to invest £580 million in the new onshore wind farm. Vestas aims to create an islands-based service organisation providing “high quality employment opportunities”.
