Vestas has received a 162 MW order for a project in the US, demonstrating Vestas’ product flexibility optimising all site needs, and including previously purchased PTC components, the full project consists of a mix of V110-2.0 MW and V136-4.2 MW wind turbines delivered in various operating modes.

The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 10-year service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project. Turbine delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2020 with commissioning scheduled for the third quarter of 2020.

In Mexico, Vestas has received a 30 MW order that includes the supply and installation of 15 V120-2.0 MW wind turbines as well as an Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the operation and maintenance of the wind park over the next 20 years.

“This order exemplifies the reliability of Vestas’ portfolio and our ability to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project,” says Agustín Sánchez-Tembleque, General Manager of Vestas México.

Turbine delivery is expected by the fourth quarter of 2020 whilst commissioning is planned by the second quarter of 2021.

Vestas pioneered the Mexican wind energy market in 1994, when it erected the country’s first commercial wind turbine. Since then, Vestas has accumulated over 2.3 GW of installed capacity or under construction in Mexico.

The projects and customers for both contracts are undisclosed.
