Vestas has received a 90 MW order for 50 V100-1.8 MW wind turbines.
With reference to Vestas Wind Systems A/S’ company announcement No. 43/2010 of 16 November 2010, Vestas has received a 90 MW order for 50 V100-1.8 MW wind turbines from John Deere Wind Energy for the Michigan Wind II project near Minden City, Michigan, USA.
The contract includes delivery and commissioning along with a 10-year service and maintenance agreement. Delivery is scheduled for mid-2011 and commissioning is expected by the end of 2011.
“Vestas is excited to help John Deere deliver additional clean energy to Michigan,” said Martha Wyrsch, President of Vestas Americas. “The V100-1.8 MW turbine is designed to produce large amounts of energy for areas with low- and medium-wind speeds.”
In 2007, Vestas supplied John Deere 32 V82-1.65 MW turbines to the Harvest Wind project near Bad Axe, Michigan, and an additional 33 V82-1.65 MW turbines for two projects in Oregon.
This marks Vestas’ second order in the United States of the V100-1.8 MW in November. The first was a 58 MW order for a project in Idaho.
