Vestas 420 MW Order

Denmark-based, Vestas has bagged an order in the United States for the development of a 420 MW wind power project. The turbine manufacturer has been selected for supplying the wind turbines for the project.

The company will supply its V120-2.2 MW turbines for the project. As a part of the agreement, Vestas will also be responsible for commissioning the project. The company has, however, declined to disclose the name of the project and customer at this point in time.

The project deliveries have been scheduled for the second quarter of 2020, and the wind farm is expected to begin commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2020.

In March, Vestas bagged multiple orders in USA and Brazil with a combined capacity worth 1112 MW. In the United States, the turbine manufacturer and wind energy solutions provider won three orders worth a total of 545 MW.

The first order the company has received is for 220 MW of V120-2.2 MW turbines for a wind project in the US. And, includes the supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

“We are proud to expand our 2 MW platform footprint and to have been chosen to perform long-term service at the site”, said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada. “The 25-year service terms will ensure that the project operates at peak performance capability and delivers clean, abundant wind energy to the community for decades to come”. 

The second order was placed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) for 143 MW of V126-3.45 MW turbines for the Bearkat II Wind project in Texas. Bearkat II is the second phase of the Bearkat project, following the successful 2017 commissioning of the Bearkat I project, which also featured V126-3.45 MW turbines.

The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 30-year service agreement, which also includes the balance of plant operations and maintenance.

The third order is for 182 MW of V150-4.2 MW turbines for a wind energy project. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a ten-year AOM 5000 service agreement.
