Vestas to supply 60 MW to RES Americas, eyes 550 MW more
Sep 20, 2013 - Danish Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) said today it had clinched a 60-MW wind turbine supply deal with Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc, or RES Americas.
The contract is part of an agreement with a potential volume of up to 610 MW.
The 60-MW firm and unconditional order is for Vestas' V100-2.0 MW machines. The blades, nacelles and towers will be made at Vestas' US plants. The deal also includes an Active Management Output (AOM) 4000 service agreement.
Vestas is expected to deliver the equipment and commission the turbines next year and in 2015. It did not give the names of the projects nor their location.
At present, the wind turbine maker’s order intake amounts to 2,936 MW, Vestas noted. A few years ago it delivered 139 pieces of the V90 1.8-MW turbine to RES Americas for the 250.2-MW Cedar Point wind park in Colorado which was switched on in 2011.
RES Americas is a unit of UK-headquartered Renewable Energy Systems Ltd (RES).
