Vestas bags contracts to supply 107MW wind turbines

CTBR Staff Writer Published 22 February 2018

Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has bagged orders for supplying 107MW of wind turbines for wind farms in the US and Italy.

In the US, the company said that it has been given a contract to supply 50MW of wind turbines in its V136-3.45 MW range. As per the contract terms, Vestas will have to deliver the turbines in 3.6MW power optimized mode.

Vestas did not disclose the company from which it received the contract or the name of the project. The Danish firm plans to manufacture the turbines for the new US wind farm at its upgraded Colorado factories, which now include production lines for the V136-3.45 MW wind turbines.

Vestas sales and service division US and Canada president Chris Brown said: “This order once again emphasises the 4 MW platform’s momentum in the traditionally 2 MW-dominated U.S. market and how Vestas’ ongoing introduction of the newest wind technology to this market and dedication to local manufacturing enable new wind projects and support local communities.

“These turbines, and the wind project they power, will generate hundreds of millions of dollars in economic benefits for the community, and support growth in a thriving American manufacturing supply chain.”

Vestas expects to deliver the turbines staring from the third quarter of 2018, with commissioning slated to be done in the fourth quarter.

In addition to supplying and commissioning the wind turbines, the Danish firm has also signed a multi-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the new US wind project.

In Italy, Vestas has bagged a contract from E.ON’s subsidiary E.ON Climate & Renewables Italy to provide wind turbines for the 57MW Morcone wind project to be built in the Benevento province. Vestas will be supplying 19 wind turbines of its V112-3.0 MW range for this wind farm.

The company expects to deliver the wind turbines in the third quarter of 2018, with commissioning scheduled for the first quarter of 2019.
