Vestas to supply first V110-2.0 MW wind turbines for 400 MW in USA

As part of a previously announced master supply agreement, Vestas will manufacture and supply its first V110-2.0 MW wind turbines for a combined 400 MW to EDP Renováveis (EDPR) for wind-energy projects in the United States.

These projects are part of the master supply agreement to deliver 1,500 MW to wind power plants in North America, South America and Europe announced April 26, 2010. EDPR selected the V110-2.0 MW because of its competitive cost of energy compared with other options.

The V110-2.0 MW turbines are expected to be delivered and commissioned in 2014 and 2015. The new projects’ names and specific locations are not available for disclosure at this time.

Vestas’ factories in Colorado will manufacture the blades, towers and nacelles for these projects.

The projects include five-year service agreements featuring the Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 offering. 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.
