Vestas Wind Systems, a Danish wind turbine maker, has secured a firm order for the delivery of 100MW of its turbines to a project in Michigan, the USA.

Danish company Vestas Wind Systems has secured a firm order for the delivery of 100MW of its turbines to a project in  Michigan.

Vestas Wind Systems will ship 29 V126-3.45 MW equipment to Sempra US Gas & Power. It will also supply and commission the turbines, which will be deployed at the 100MW Apple Blossom wind project. 

In addition, the agreement includes a multi-year, full-scope service provision.

"The turbines will be deliverd in Q3 2017 while installation and commissioning will be completed in Q4, 2017."

Vestas Wind Systems' US and Canada sales and service division president Chris Brown said: “The turbines at Apple Blossom are another example of the increasing demand for our 3MW platform in the US.

“The platform repeatedly proves its versatility across a variety of North American wind regimes and across the Midwestern wind belt, as our customers are benefitting from the five different rotor sizes, taller towers, and different power modes."

The turbines will be deliverd in Q3 2017 while installation and commissioning will be completed in Q4, 2017. The project was originally developed by Geronimo, but was acquired by Sempra in July.
