Vestas has received the first orders for the V136-4.2 MW turbine in North America. The orders total 146 MW across multiple projects in Canada.
Reflecting Vestas’ vision to be the energy industry’s global partner on sustainable energy solutions, and enabled by economies of scale and execution efficiencies honed across the industry’s largest installed fleet, Vestas is taking on installation scope for the projects, with deliveries to begin in the third quarter of 2019 and commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of the same year.
“We’re pleased to bring Vestas’ 4 MW platform and installation capabilities to Canada to unlock record-breaking low wind costs across the country,” said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada. “The V136 turbine is an ideal fit for the local wind and land resource profile, and will deliver clean, low-cost wind energy and many economic benefits to the local community.”
The orders include supply, installation, and commissioning of the turbines as well as a five-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreements, designed to maximize uptime and energy production and ensure optimized performance for the lifetime of the project.
