Vestas receives another significant order

Vestas, a Danish wind power manufacturer, has received another order wind power technology, the second this week.

The firm said in a press release that PacifiCorp, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Energy, has ordered 459 megawatts of turbines to be used in two wind projects.

The two wind projects are TB Flats I and II, located in Wyoming. Including previously purchased turbines, the projects will have a combined capacity of 503 MW.

Earlier this week, the company accepted an order for 420 MW from an undisclosed company. Vestas operates a blade manufacturing facility in Windsor, a nacelle’s plant in Brighton and a tower plant in Pueblo.

TB Flats I and II are part of PacifiCorp’s Energy Vision 2020 initiative, a $3.1 billion investment to expand wind power via repowering existing projects, adding 1,150 MW of new wind resources by the end of 2020, and building a 140-mile transmission line in Wyoming to enable wind generation.

As part of Energy Vision 2020, Vestas and PacifiCorp previously partnered on repowering the Marengo and Marengo II wind projects in Washington, upgrading the site’s existing turbines with V100-2.0 MW turbines, Vestas said in its announcement.

“We’re pleased PacifiCorp has selected our V136-4.2 MW, operating in 4.3 MW power optimised mode, for the TB Flats I and II projects,” Chris Brown, president of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada, said in a written statement. “With their Energy Vision 2020 initiative and commitment to expanding wind energy, PacifiCorp brings both the environmental and economic benefits of low-cost, competitive, and clean wind energy to their customers and communities.”

The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 12-year service agreement, designed to ensure optimized performance of the project. Turbine delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2020, with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.
