Vestas has received a 24-MW order for 12 V100-2.0 MW wind turbines from juwi Wind Canada Ltd., for four projects in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Deliveries for all projects — Truro Heights, Millbrook, Whynotts and Chebucto Pockwock — are expected to occur in mid-2014 with commissioning in the second half of next year.
Vestas’ nacelle factory in Colorado will assemble the hub and nacelle for these projects while the blades and towers will come from the company’s European factories.
Vestas has previously supplied turbines to juwi Wind for projects in Germany.
The projects will have five-year service agreements using Active Output Management (AOM) 5000. AOM 5000 is an energy-based availability guarantee that ensures the turbines are operational when the wind is blowing. This service option includes the VestasOnline® surveillance system that remotely controls and monitors the turbines and predicts potential wear-and-tear issues. This allows Vestas to plan maintenance so the turbines operate with the minimum amount of lost production.
This year, Vestas has received over 900 MW of orders in the United States and Canada among four turbine types.
