Vestas will soon begin shipping 46 turbines to Senegal in Western Africa for the wind farm Taiba N'Diaye.

The 159 MW wind farm will be developed by utility Lekela, which has nominated Vestas' V 126 turbines, at 3.45 MW each.

The project, located 70 kilometers from the capital Dakar, will mark Senegal's largest wind farm, and, according to Lekela, boost the country's electricity capacity by 15 percent.

The project is co-financed by the Danish government's Export Credit Agency, EKF, while players in the US and the World Bank have also injected money and guarantees, reports Reuters.
