The first order is for 459 MW of V136-4.2 MW turbines operating in 4.3 MW power-optimised mode for two wind projects, TB Flats I and II, located in Wyoming. Including previously purchased V110-2.0 MW turbines, the projects will have a total combined capacity of 503 MW.

And the latest order is for 228 MW of V136-4.2 MW, operating in 4.3 MW power-optimised mode. for the 250 MW Ekola Flats wind project, also located in Wyoming.  

TB Flats I and II and then Ekola Flats are part of PacifiCorp’s Energy Vision 2020 initiative, a USD 3.1 billion investment to expand wind power via repowering existing projects, adding 1,150 MW of new wind resources by the end of 2020, and building a 140-mile transmission line segment in Wyoming to enable wind generation.

“We’re pleased PacifiCorp has selected our V136-4.2 MW, operating in 4.3 MW power-optimised mode for the TB Flats I and II projects,” said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the US and Canada. “With their Energy Vision 2020 initiative and commitment to expanding wind energy, PacifiCorp brings both the environmental and economic benefits of low-cost, competitive, and clean wind energy to their customers and communities.”

The orders include supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 12-year AOM 4000 service agreements, designed to ensure optimised performance of the project. Turbine deliveries have been scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2020, with commissioning scheduled for the third (Ekola) and fourth (TB I and II) quarter of 2020.

As part of Energy Vision 2020, Vestas had previously partnered on repowering the Marengo and Marengo II wind projects in Washington, upgrading the site’s existing V80-1.8 MW turbines with V100-2.0 MW turbines.
