Vestas wins 40MW wind turbine order in Maine, US
Vestas has secured a contract to supply turbines for the 40MW Passadumkeag wind farm in Penobscot County, Maine, US.
The deal with Quantum Utility Generation subsidiary Passadumkeag Windpark requires Vesats to deliver and commission 13 of its V112 3.075MW turbines.
It includes a five-year Active Output Management (AOM 4000) service agreement.
The deal is the first between both the firms and Vestas said it is the result of a multi-year collaboration on site design, environmental permitting and grid interconnection.
Quantum Utility Generation president Sean O'Donnell said: "Quantum is excited about how building this top-tier utility-scale wind project will help increase employment and provide long-term benefits for the state of Maine."
Vestas president for sales and service division in the US and Canada Chris Brown said: "Like our other projects in Maine, this one is an opportunity for Maine ports, Maine construction jobs, and Maine-based service technicians."
Denmark-based Vestas currently has 166.2MW deployed in Maine and a 148MW project near Oakfield.
Vestas sold its first wind turbines in the US in 1980, and established its North America subsidiary in 1981. The company installed 12,602 MW in the US by the end of 2014.
