Danish wind turbine manufacturer seller, installer, and servicer Vestas Wind Systems A/S has won the tender to install Sri Lanka first large scale wind power plant—the 104 megawatt (MW) Mannar Power Project.


The tender that includes engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) was placed by Ceylon Electricity 
Board (CEB).  


The tender represents the first large scale wind project ever planned in the country as previous projects were in the range of 10 to 15 MW.
The Mannar Power Project was conceived by the CEB and is fully funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

 Vestas will provide the Mannar Wind Power Project Phase 1 with delivery, installation and commissioning of 30 V126-3.45 MW wind turbines, as well as civil and electrical work. 


The project will also include full scope Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) based service agreement as well as a Vestas Online Business SCADA solution.


“We are very excited with this order and the opportunity to be back in Sri Lanka”, Vestas Asia Pacific President Clive Turton said in a statement. 


“This tender signifies a clear indication of CEB and local policymakers’ intention to promote sustainable energy sources as well as increase the mix of sustainable energy in the local grid. Vestas looks forward to working together with our local partners and the local authorities towards this common goal.”


Construction activities are expected to commence in the first quarter of 2019, and the project is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2020.
