Vestas has been awarded two orders for a combined 332 MW capacity in wind turbines for projects under development in the USA.
Vestas, one of the leading wind turbine manufacturers in the world has announced that it has 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.
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. The scheduled turbine delivery and commissioning of the plant is identical to the first order.
Recently, the firm had reported that it has received an order from EPV Energia, a Finish energy company for 21 V150-5.6 MW turbines for the Paskoonharju II wind energy project in the municipality of Teuva, Finland. It was reported that to maximise energy production for the project’s lifetime in the site’s strong wind conditions, Vestas has tailored a solution that combines the V150-5.6 MW turbines’ robust design and large rotors with 155-meter towers and a 30-year service agreement. By utilising the wind industry’s newest and most advanced technology, the customer will be able to operate the wind power plant on merchant terms.
Earlier, the company had also announced a new 42 MW order with a 27-year service agreement in Sweden. The order has been received from Fu-Gen AG, a Swiss developer for the 42 MW wind project Fjällboheden northwest of Skellefteå in Northern Sweden.
