Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order in the U.S. for 60 MW of V110-2.0 MW turbines for an undisclosed project in the U.S. The project, which includes previously purchased PTC components, has a total size of 66 MW and consists of 30 turbines.
The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a multi-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service agreement, a full-scope service package designed to maximize uptime and energy production.
Delivery is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2017, with commissioning planned for the fourth quarter.
"Each turbine manufactured in this order will support 30 full-time jobs over its lifetime," said Chris Brown, President of Vestas' sales and service division in the United States and Canada, and continued "These turbines will be produced at our Colorado factories, generating economic benefits across a diverse and domestic American supply chain and supporting long-term jobs in Colorado and the project community."
With more than 36 GW installed in 45 countries on six continents since its debut, Vestas' 2 MW platform is the most widely installed platform in the industry.
Project and customer are undisclosed at the customer's request.
