September 30 (Renewables Now) - Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) will supply 151 MW of turbines to US-based renewable energy company Pattern Energy Group LP for the Lanfine Wind project in Alberta, Canada.

The Danish wind turbine manufacturer said today Pattern Energy has placed an order for 35 units of the V150-4.2 MW turbine in 4.3 MW operating mode. Vestas will supply and commission the turbines, with delivery to start in the second quarter of 2022 and commissioning planned for the fourth quarter of the same year. The order also includes a multi-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

Pattern Energy chief executive Mike Garland said that Lanfine Wind will expand the company’s Canadian presence to 10 wind power facilities across five provinces.

“By utilising the Vestas V150, a quiet and powerful turbine, we are able to reduce the footprint of the Lanfine Wind project while maintaining its output,” Garland also commented.
