Vestas has secured another order in the United States, only this time for turbine components. The company recently received a firm and unconditional order for 131 MW of PTC qualifying turbine components.
The contract includes qualifying components compatible with a variety of turbines across the 2 and 3-MW platforms. Delivery of the wind-turbine components is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016.
“We are pleased to announce this PTC Safe Harbor order, which will enable our customer to qualify a substantial portfolio of projects for 100% of the Production Tax Credit value,” said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the U.S. and Canada.
He added: “This versatile component mix will provide high competitiveness during this PTC window, and will enable our customer to deliver even more cost-effective wind energy to rate payers throughout North America.”
Since the debut, more than 8 GW of the 3-MW platform and 18-GW of the 2-MW platform have been installed globally, both onshore and offshore.
Multiple components for this project will be produced at Vestas’ Colorado factories. Customer and project names have not been disclosed at the customer’s request.
