Vestas will provide 24 megawatts of new wind power for Lisheen, Ireland.

Bord Gais, the local state-owned energy utility has placed the order for 12 V90-2.0 MW turbines from the wind energy giant, according to a recent statement.

The new wind turbines will add to the existing 18 V90-2.0MW turbines that were installed in 2009 at the Lisheen wind farm.

The turbines are expected to be sent in the first quarter of 2013.

President of Vestas Northern Europe, Klaus Steen Mortensen, was happy with the recent announcement for more wind power being ordered in Ireland.

“We are very pleased to announce the 2nd phase of the Lisheen wind farm project. This is a tremendous opportunity for Vestas to strengthen our presence in Ireland and confirms our leading position in the wind industry worldwide. Being the only global company focused solely on wind technology, we are fully committed to ensure our customers the best return on investment in each wind project.”
