A consortium of Masdar and EDF Renewables has delivered first power from the 415MW Dumat Al Jandal wind farm in Saudi Arabia.
Dumat Al Jandal will comprise 99 Vestas V150-4.2MW turbines when fully complete next year.
Vestas is installing the hardware as part of an engineering, procurement and construction contract secured in July 2019.
The wind farm has a 20-year power purchase agreement with the Saudi Power Procurement Company, a subsidiary of Saudi Electricity Company, the Saudi power generation and distribution company.
Dumat Al Jandal was awarded to the consortium by the Renewable Energy Project Development Office at the Saudi Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources following a call for tenders launched in August 2017.
