Vestas has received an order from Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. for wind turbines producing a total capacity of 60 MW. The order could lead to Vestas ultimately supplying RES Americas with up to 610 MW of wind turbines.
The initial order of 60 MW will be delivered to two separate projects, each using the V100-2.0 MW wind turbine. The names and locations of the projects were not disclosed, but deliveries and commission are expected to occur in 2014 and 2015.
The projects will include Vestas’ Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 maintenance program. The service option includes the VestasOnline surveillance system, which allows remote control and monitoring of the turbines.
Vestas has previously worked with RES to supply 139 V90-1.8 MW turbines for the Cedar Point wind power project in Colorado. The project achieved commercial operation in 2011 and was the first commercial-scale wind power plant in the state to use Vestas turbines made in Colorado.
