Vestas US Order

Vestas has received an order for 249 MW of V136-4.2 MW turbines and V136-3.45 MW turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode for a project in the U.S. Including previously purchased 4 MW components, the project has a total nameplate capacity of 300 MW.

The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a multi-year AOM 5000 service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project. Turbine delivery will begin the second quarter of 2021 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2021.

The firm has also announced that it has secured an order from Inergia SpA, a leading producer of renewable energy in Italy, for the Stornara project located in the Apulia region.

Awarded in the Italian auction round in October 2019, the 18 MW order adds to the more than 1.1 GW of contracts signed by Vestas in Italy’s auction system, thus demonstrating its ability to support customers in submitting winning auction bids. The order reinforces the firms’ leadership in the country’s wind energy sector, where it has installed more than 4.3 GW since 1991, accounting for a 40 percent market share.

The order includes the supply and installation of five V136-3.45 MW wind turbines delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimised Mode, as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.

“We are very pleased to partner with Inergia once again. The company has selected our 4 MW platform for the first time, showcasing the reliability of Vestas’ solutions and our capability to adapt our cutting-edge technology to the specific requirements of the wind project”, says Vestas Vice President of Sales Region South Europe and Turkey, Rainer Karan. 

Turbine delivery will begin in the first quarter of 2021 with commissioning scheduled for the same quarter.

Recently, we had reported that the firm had received a 336 MW order from the Taaleri SolarWind II fund and co-investors, AIP and Akuo Energy for the Escalade wind project in Texas, USA which will feature the first Enventus platform turbines in the USA. The order includes supply, installation, and commissioning of 45 V162-5.6 MW and 20 V150-4.2 MW turbines as well as a 30-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project.

Turbine delivery will begin the second quarter of 2021 with commissioning scheduled to begin the third quarter of 2021.
