More Wind Turbines To The USA.
Vestas has been in business for 110 years and claims to be the only global energy company that specializes exclusively on wind energy. The company announced recently that it has received two firm and unconditional orders, totaling 162 MW of V110-2.0 MW turbines for projects in the United States.
For one of the orders, some of the turbines will be delivered in the 2.2 MW power optimized mode. Vestas and the customer utilized the flexibility of the V110 power modes to customize a site-specific product mix that extracts the maximum wind resource output, reaping the optimal value between yield and cost.
Both orders include supply and commissioning of the wind turbines as well as Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreements, a full-scope service package to maximize uptime and performance and energy production. Turbine delivery will begin in the third quarter of 2017.
Turbine nacelles, blades, and towers will be produced at Vestas’ Colorado factories.
Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada said:
The V110-2.0 MW is our flagship turbine platform in the United States, and the versatility of site-specific power mode combinations unlocks the potential of the wind conditions and increases site output.
There is no idication of where these turines will be installed or which company purchased them.
