Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has bagged a 50MW contract from an undisclosed customer for the repowering of four wind farms to be built in northern Portugal.

Under the contract, Vestas will be responsible for the supply and installation of 11 V150-4.5 MW wind turbines and a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
