Vestas has received a U.S. order for 36 V110-2.0 MW turbines to power the Marshall Wind Farm in Marshall County, Kansas. The order was placed by RPM Access LLC, an independent developer, owner and operator of wind farms in the Midwest. The project’s scope includes supply and commissioning of the wind turbines as well as a 20-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement designed to maximize energy production.
The announcement marks the first turbine supply contract between Vestas and RPM Access.
“RPM Access is very pleased to purchase such high-quality turbines that are manufactured in the United States,” says Felix Friedman, Vice President of Development. “The Vestas V110-2.0 MW wind turbine generators on 95-meter towers provide RPMA an optimal match to the wind conditions at the northeast Kansas site. Together with Vestas’ long-term service agreement and our strong local partnerships, we are looking forward to realising the full potential of the Marshall Wind Farm.”
“We are delighted to embark on this long-term partnership with RPM Access,” says Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the U.S. and Canada. “In addition to increasing the amount of clean and affordable energy available to the people of Kansas and Missouri, the 20-year service agreement ensures RPM Access will receive unparalleled service and optimal energy production from their turbines and that these communities will benefit from a steady source of quality jobs.”
Installation and commissioning of the turbines is expected in the first half of 2016.
