CTBR Staff Writer Published 22 January 2015

Vestas has secured a contract from First Reserve to deliver turbines for the 298MW Kingfisher wind project in Oklahoma, US.

The deal requires Vestas to supply and commission 149 V100-2MW turbines. It includes a 10-year active output management service agreement.

Vestas expects to deliver the turbines in late 2015. The company said the Kingfisher wind project has a consistent wind resource.

First Reserve has agreed to acquire the Kingfisher wind project from Apex Clean Energy, which will manage construction and serve as asset manager during facility operation.

The wind farm, which is being developed in Canadian County, Oklahoma, will generate enough energy for about 100,000 homes.

First Reserve managing director and head of infrastructure funds Mark Florian said: "First Reserve is pleased to be making one of the initial investments in its second energy infrastructure fund.

"Kingfisher Wind represents the opportunity to diversify the portfolio of our energy infrastructure program with experienced and reliable counterparties such as Vestas."

Vestas had earlier delivered 49 V100-2 MW turbines to Apex for the Hoopeston wind project in Illinois, which was acquired by IKEA.
