Vestas – global wind turbine manufacturer has announced that it has signed the first EnVentus order in the Eastern Europe region for the 126 MW wind project in the Mykolaiv Region of Ukraine, expected to be fully commissioned in the second quarter of 2022. The project is being developed by Tiligulska Wind Electric Plant LLC - a subsidiary company of DTEK Renewables.
Vestas, with this project, has secured an order intake of more than 2.1 GW across three continents for the EnVentus platform. In the past, it has also delivered the 90 MW Botievska I and 110 MW Botievska II projects, and the 100 MW Orlivska project for DTEK Renewables in Ukraine.

Under the project, Vestas will be responsible for the installation and commissioning of 21 V162-6.0 MW wind turbines, alongside a long-term 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, enabling optimal power production throughout the project lifetime.
Maris Kunickis, CEO of DTEK Renewables said: “We are happy to present our new ambitious project with Vestas. For DTEK, Tiligulska WPP is a quality milestone, proof of our growing expertise and our commitment to European values of Green transition. This is our contribution to the European integration of Ukraine and I believe that our new project will serve as a positive message to investors that they can and should invest into the Ukrainian green generation.”
The V162-6.0 MW turbines boast a swept area of over 20,000 square metres, and industry-leading energy production while benefiting from the advanced modular design approach applied across Vestas’ EnVentus platform.
