Portland, 23 June 2021
Vestas has secured a 145 MW order to power the Panorama Wind Farm in Colorado, U.S., which is owned by Leeward Renewable Energy. This order consists of a mix of 2 MW platform turbines including V120-2.2 MW, V110-2.2 MW, and V110-2.0 MW turbines. This order follows Vestas’ earlier agreement with Leeward Renewable Energy to supply 61 MW of V110-2.0 MW and V120-2.2 MW turbines to repower the Crescent Ridge Wind project in Illinois.
“We’re proud to once again partner with Leeward Renewable Energy on a project that extends the successful run of Vestas’ 2 MW platform in the state,” said Jeff Fuchs, Vice President of Sales for Vestas in North America.
“Leeward is pleased to partner with Vestas and deliver sustainable wind energy and economic benefits to the people of Colorado,” said Andrew Flanagan, Leeward Renewable Energy’s Chief Development Officer.
The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance of the asset.
Turbine delivery will begin in the third quarter of 2021 and construction is expected to be completed in December 2021.
