October 1 (Renewables Now) - Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has secured orders to supply turbines for 360 MW of onshore wind projects in the US and Canada, the Danish manufacturer said on Thursday as part of its traditional series of end of quarter announcements.

Project details and customer names were not released.

The project in Canada will build a 297-MW wind farm using 45 units of Vestas V150-4.5 MW turbines and 22 units of the V150-4.2 MW machines delivered in 4.3-MW operating mode.

The scope of the contract includes supply, transport and commissioning of the turbines, and a 25-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

Turbine delivery is set to commence in the third quarter of 2022, while commissioning is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2023.

Across the border in the US, Vestas will supply 15 turbines for two wind projects with a combined capacity of 63 MW. Both projects will use the V117-4.2 MW turbines, with eight units delivered to one site and seven to the other.

Orders for both projects include supply, commissioning and 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

Turbine deliveries to both sites are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2022, with commissioning scheduled to follow in the fourth quarter of 2022.
