News release from Vestas-American Wind Technology
Portland, 25 June 2021
Vestas has received a 31 MW order to repower an undisclosed wind project in the U.S. The repowering order consists of V110-2.2 MW wind turbines, which will replace the site’s current technology. Including previously purchased 2 MW platform components, the project has a total nameplate capacity of 33 MW.
“Vestas successfully took over service and maintenance of these non-Vestas turbines in 2020, and we’re excited for the opportunity to upgrade the technology,” said Jeff Fuchs, Vice President of Sales for Vestas in North America. “Repowering offers a great solution for asset owners of aging fleets faced with higher operation and maintenance costs and increased complexities of sourcing spare parts for obsolete technologies. This order adds to Vestas' track record of more than 550 MW of non-Vestas repowers in the U.S. alone.”
Vestas is the world’s leading multibrand service provider, servicing more than 117 GW of wind turbines, globally, including 8 GW of non-Vestas turbines across the largest wind turbine brands.
This project includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance of the asset.Deliveries will begin in the third quarter of 2022 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2022.
