Vestas has secured its first order in the United States for its V126-3.3 MW wind turbines for a 200-MW project in Oklahoma. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a three-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement.
AOM5000 is an energy-based availability guarantee that ensures the turbines are operational when the wind is blowing.
The V126-3.3 MW is part of Vestas’ successful 3 MW platform. With five rotor variants, two nacelle configurations, multiple power modes, and 15 hub heights, this platform enables an optimal turbine configuration for each unique wind site.
The 3-MW platform also maximizes annual energy production and optimizes a plant’s levelized cost of energy.
“Historically, Oklahoma has been 2-MW territory,” said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ Sales and Service Division in the U.S. and Canada. “But this order once again emphasizes the versatility of our product portfolio and shows that we can draw from both our 2-MW and 3-MW platforms to select exactly the right turbine to meet our customers’ needs.”
