For one of the orders, some of the turbines will be delivered in the 2.2-MW power optimized mode. Vestas and the customer, yet unnamed, have decided to use the flexibility of the V110 power modes to customize a site-specific product mix that extracts the maximum wind resource output and provides the optimal value between yield and cost.
Both orders include supply and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreements, a full-scope service package to maximize uptime and performance and energy production. Turbine delivery will begin in the third quarter of 2017.
Turbine nacelles, blades, and towers will be produced at Vestas’ Colorado factories.
“The V110-2.0 MW is our flagship turbine platform in the United States, and the versatility of site-specific power mode combinations unlocks the potential of the wind conditions and increases site output,” says Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada.
Vestas also recently entered into a conditional agreement in the U.S. for a 2,000-MW Wind XI project in Iowa.
