The order comprises 29 MW of V110-2.0 MW turbine components for repowering wind projects and is Vestas’ third repowering order in the U.S. in December.

The firm and unconditional order includes 29 MW of V110-2.0 MW turbine components that enable future repowering efforts within the customer’s operating wind project portfolio. The turbine components will be manufactured at Vestas’ Colorado factories with delivery expected in the beginning of 2017. 

Repowering existing and aging wind projects with new technology is expected to increase over the coming years with repowering offering substantial returns from increased annual energy production and reduced operating costs.

“At Vestas we always look for ways to add value through collaboration and innovation in our technology and solutions. Vestas’ repowering solutions is an example of this and will be used to unlock even more value and performance from existing wind projects”, said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada.
