Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order in the United States from Sempra U.S. Gas & Power for 29 V126-3.45 MW wind turbines. The turbines will be deployed at the 100-MW Apple Blossom wind project in Michigan.
The order comprises supply and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a multi-year Active Output Management 5000 service agreement, a full-scope service package to maximize uptime and performance and energy production.
“The turbines at Apple Blossom are another example of the increasing demand for our 3-MW platform in the U.S,” said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the U.S. and Canada. “The platform repeatedly proves its versatility across a variety of North American wind regimes and across the Midwestern wind belt, as our customers are benefitting from the five different rotor sizes, taller towers, and different power modes.”
Originally developed by Geronimo, the Apple Blossom wind project was acquired by Sempra in July of this year. Delivery of the turbines is planned for the third quarter of 2017, and commissioning expected in the fourth quarter of that year. Nacelles, blades, and towers will be produced at Vestas’ Colorado factories.
