March 29 (Renewables Now) - Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) said today it has secured a full-scope engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a 45-MW wind farm in Jordan.

The order is from new customer Shobak Wind Energy PSC, a majority owned subsidiary of Dubai-based Alcazar Energy.

As part of the deal, Vestas will supply, transport, install and commission 13 units of its V136-3.45 MW turbine at the Al Shobak wind farm in southern Jordan. The site is located in the Ma'an governorate in the district of Shobak.

The order also includes a five-year operation and maintenance agreement. The turbines are expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2019 and to be commissioned by the end of that year.

Vestas noted this is its third EPC contract for a wind farm in Jordan after the 114-MW Al Tafila and 89-MW Fujeij projects.
