Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has placed an order for 143 MW of Vestas‘ V126-3.45 MW turbines for the Bearkat II Wind project in Texas. Bearkat II is the second phase of the Bearkat project, following the successful 2017 commissioning of the Bearkat I project, which also featured V126-3.45 MW turbines.
Including previously purchased components, the project will have a total capacity of 162 MW. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 30-year service agreement, which also includes balance of plant operations and maintenance.
“We are pleased to continue the good collaboration with Vestas on the extension of Bearkat. Vestas has proven their ability to deliver optimized project performance and reliability,” said Michael Hannibal, Partner for CIP.
Vestas has also received a separate 182-MW U.S. order for its V150-4.2 MW turbines. This agreement is for an undisclosed project at the client’s request. It includes supply and commissioning of the turbines, and a 10-year AOM 5000 service agreement. Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2020, with commissioning expected in the fourth quarter of 2020.
