Vestas receives 100 MW order in Michigan
3 MW platform expansion continues in North America with V126-3.45 MW turbines in Michigan, underlining the platform’s versatility.
Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order in the United States from Sempra U.S. Gas & Power (“Sempra”) for 29 V126-3.45 MW turbines. The turbines will be deployed at the 100 MW Apple Blossom wind project in Michigan.
The order comprises supply and commissioning of the wind turbines as well as a multi-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement, a full-scope service package to maximize uptime and performance and energy production.
“The turbines at Apple Blossom are another example of the increasing demand for our 3 MW platform in the U.S. The platform repeatedly proves its versatility across a variety of North American wind regimes and across the Midwestern wind belt, as our customers are benefitting from the five different rotor sizes, taller towers and different power modes,” says Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada. “We’re very happy to add this latest agreement to our portfolio with Sempra.”
Originally developed by Geronimo, the Apple Blossom wind project was acquired by Sempra in July of this year, while delivery of the turbines is planned for the third quarter of 2017 and commissioning expected in the fourth quarter of that year. Nacelles, blades, and towers will be produced at Vestas’ Colorado factories.
Since the Vestas 3 MW-platform’s debut, more than 10 GW have been installed globally, both onshore and offshore.
