Vestas has received a new turbine order in the U.S. for a wind project to be co-developed with RES America Developments. The order is for 100 MW of V136-3.45 MW turbines from Southern Power, a U.S. wholesale energy provider and subsidiary of Southern Company. The turbines are for its recent acquisition of the Wildhorse Mountain wind project in Oklahoma.
The Wildhorse Mountain wind project was developed by Roaring Fork Wind, a joint venture partnership between RES Americas Developments, and Steelhead Americas, Vestas’ development arm in North America.
“Southern Power has renewable energy facilities from coast to coast, and with this order Vestas once again demonstrates its ability to leverage its vast experience across wind power plants’ entire value chain and develop solutions that meet specific customer needs,” said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the U.S. and Canada.
Turbine delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2019. Roaring Fork Wind, LLC is a strategic co-development partnership between Steelhead Americas, Vestas North American development arm, and RES America Developments with the purpose of developing wind power plants.
“From the development stages with our co-development team, through to the long-term service agreement, Vestas offered solutions at every stage of the project lifecycle to ensure the lowest cost of energy, highest quality of technology, and optimal park performance,” added Brown.
