Vestas has announced an unconditional order for 200 MW worth of wind turbines in the United States. At the customer’s request, the customer and project name have not yet been disclosed.
Just last week, Vestas received a new order from MidAmerican Energy Company, the largest utility owner of wind energy in the U.S. for the 2,000-MW Wind XI project in Iowa. It was for 153 MW of V110-2.0 MW turbines with the potential for future order intakes.
Vestas also recently received a U.S. order Vestas totaling 42 MW, with multiple components planned for production at the company’s Colorado factories.
“Low-cost domestic wind energy brings substantial economic benefits to ratepayers and the communities that host these projects including long-term secure jobs in the manufacturing, construction and operations of these projects,” said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada.
