Vestas receives 243MW wind turbine supply orders in US and Jordan

Published 26 December 2016

Vestas has received two orders to supply 104 wind turbines totalling 243MW in the US and Jordan.

The order in the US has been placed by MidAmerican Energy, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Energy, for supply of 77 V110-2.0MW turbines totalling 154MW. This deal is part of the 2000MW Wind XI project in the state of Iowa.

Vestas noted that it will manufacture the wind turbines at its facilities in Colorado and deliver them in 2017.

As part of the contract, the company will also be responsible for commissioning of wind turbines.

It has also signed a five year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service agreement to offer a service package that is aimed at maximizing uptime and energy production.

Vestas US and Canada sales and service division president Chris Brown said: "Wind helps energy prices stay stable and more affordable for customers, while providing significant economic benefits for local communities and the state of Iowa.”

The second order has been placed by Korean Electric Power (KEPCO) through Fujeji Wind Power for supply of 27 V126-3.3MW turbines to construct the Fujeji wind farm in Al Shobak, Governorate of Ma'an, Jordan. 

According to Vestas, blades of the wind turbines have been designed to work in low and medium wind speed conditions that are often seen in Jordan.

The Danish wind turbine manufacturer has also been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the project. Besides, the order includes a 20 year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service agreement.

Delivery of the wind turbines is expected to take place in the fourth quarter of 2017 and the installation and commissioning is expected to be done in the third quarter of 2018.

FWPC CEO Dongill Chung said: “After long gestation period, we both are able to see this project finally start to come true. Taking this opportunity, we, KEPCO and FWPC would like to deliver our sincere gratitude to Vestas for its endless efforts and cooperation.

“Further, being so proud of having Vestas as EPC contractor for this project, we would like to extend both companies’ partnership to other domestic or overseas wind projects.”
