Under the deal, Vestas will supply 100 of its V110-2.0 MW turbines for the wind project of Odell Wind Farm, which has been formed through a joint venture by Algonquin Power and a third party.

As well as supplying and commissioning the wind turbines, Vestas will be offering ten-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service for the facility, which includes guarantee for energy-based availability and will ensure that the turbines are operational.

The delivery for the turbines is likely to start in the third quarter of 2015 and the commissioning of the turbines is expected to be concluded by the end of 2015.

The wind project is being built on 23,000 acres of land across four counties and will have a annual generation capacity of 816.6GWh.

Vestas US and Canada sales and service division president Chris Brown said: "We are excited to build yet another successful project with Algonquin, this time using our V110-2.0MW turbine.
