June 1 (Renewables Now) - Danish turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) on Friday confirmed an order to equip a 100-MW wind park in Oklahoma for US wholesale energy provider Southern Power.

As part of the deal, Vestas will supply and commission V136-3.45 MW turbines for the Wildhorse Mountain wind project, which the Southern Co (NYSE:SO) bought earlier this week. The 29-turbine project was developed by Roaring Fork Wind LLC -- a partnership between RES Americas Developments and Steelhead Americas, Vestas’ development arm in North America. It is expected to be finalised in the last quarter of 2019.

Turbine deliveries are scheduled for the second quarter of 2019, Vestas said. The contract also includes a 20-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement.

Generated electricity from the Wildhorse Mountain wind farm, as well as all other attributes, will be sold to Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation (AECC) under a 20-year deal. AECC, in turn, intends to sell the renewable energy credits (RECs) associated with the plant’s generation.
