     A consortium formed by EDF Renewables and Masdar placed the order for the Dumat Al Jandal wind project being built in the Al Jouf region of the country.
    Under the terms of the agreement Vestas will provide 99 of its V150-4.2MW machines and will install the turbines as part of an engineering, procurement and construction contract.
    The company will also operate and maintain Dumat Al Jandal under a 20-year service agreement.
    The wind farm was awarded to EDF Renewables and Masdar by the Renewable Energy Project Development Office in the Saudi Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources in January 2019.
    Once operational, it will produce electricity under a 20-year power purchase agreement with the Saudi Power Procurement Company.
    The order marks the first phase of Saudi Arabia’s plan to install 7GW of wind capacity within five years, and 16GW by 2030.
    Vestas Mediterranean president Eduardo Medina said: “I would like to thank EDF Renewables and Masdar for the strong collaboration on developing this solution where we have leveraged our extensive experience in pioneering wind markets to win the competitive auction for the country’s first wind park.”
