Vestas receives two orders totaling 139 MW in USA

Vestas has received orders for a total of 139 MW for 77 V100-1.8 MW turbines from First Wind for two wind-energy projects in the USA.

The 104.4-MW Palouse Wind project in Whitman County, Washington, will include 58 V100-1.8 MW turbines while the 34.2-MW Bull Hill wind power plant in Hancock County, Maine, will feature 19 V100-1.8 MW turbines.

The contracts for both projects include delivery and commissioning along with a 10-year service and maintenance agreement. Deliveries for Palouse Wind and Bull Hill are scheduled for mid-2012, and both projects are expected to be commissioned in late 2012.

?We are very pleased to be working with a new customer, First Wind, to build two U.S. energy projects,? said Martha Wyrsch, President of Vestas-American Wind Technology, Inc. ?The V100-1.8 MW is proven technology that?s well-designed for wind speeds of this area.?

The Palouse Wind contract includes Vestas? newest service program ? Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 ? which has an energy-based guarantee to ensure the turbines are operational when the wind is blowing. The Bull Hill service agreement includes the AOM 4000 maintenance program, which guarantees turbine availability. Both service contracts include all planned and unplanned maintenance services and continuous remote monitoring and surveillance of the projects via the VestasOnline® SCADA system.

The Palouse wind power plant will provide enough electricity to power more than 30,000 Washington homes while Bull Hill will generate enough electricity to power more than 15,000 homes in Maine.

Vestas supplied its first turbines to Washington in 2001 and has 816 MW of installed capacity in the state. This will be the second wind power plant in Maine using Vestas turbines, the first being installed in 2009.

This order is Vestas? 11th North American order announcement in 2011 for a combined total of 1,558 MW. It?s also the 10th contract for a project using V100-1.8 MW turbines in North America since 2010.
