Vestas US 224 MW Wind

Vestas has received an order for 224 MW of V120-2.2 MW wind turbines for a wind project in the US. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 10-year service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project. Turbine delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2020 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.

The project and customer have not been disclosed at the moment.

Recently, it was reported that the firm had been awarded two orders for a combined 332 MW capacity in wind turbines for projects under development in the USA.

The first order has been received for  149 MW of turbines, consisting of 12 V110-2.0 MW turbines and 57 V120-2.2 MW turbines for a wind project in the U.S. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a multi-year service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project. Turbine delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2020 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.

The second-order has been received for 183 MW of V120-2.2 MW turbines for a wind project with a number of turbines operating in 2 MW. Including previously purchased 2 MW platform components, the project has a total nameplate capacity of 202 MW.

More recently, the wind turbine manufacturer had announced that Mainstream Renewable Power has placed a 185 MW wind turbine order for the Cerro Tigre wind farm, to be located in the Antofagasta region, in Chile. The contract includes the supply and installation of 44 V117-4.2 MW wind turbines, as well as an Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the operation and maintenance of the wind park over the next 20 years.

When fully operational, the plant is expected to generate enough carbon-free electricity to supply more than one in every six Chilean homes and will play an important role in helping to reduce the cost of electricity generation in the country.
