Vestas Secures 131 MW Order In The United States

Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for 131 MW of PTC qualifying turbine components.

The order includes qualifying components compatible with a variety of turbines across the 2 MW and 3 MW platforms.

Since their debut, more than 8 GW of the 3 MW platform and 18 GW of the 2 MW platform have been installed globally, both onshore and offshore.

Delivery of the wind turbine components is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016.

“We are pleased to announce this PTC Safe Harbor order, which will enable our customer to qualify a substantial portfolio of projects for 100 percent of the Production Tax Credit value. This versatile component mix will provide high competitiveness during this PTC window, and will enable our customer to deliver even more cost-effective wind energy to rate payers throughout North America,” said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada.

Multiple components will be produced at Vestas’ Colorado factories.
