Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has received an order from Berkshire Hathaway Energy subsidiary PacifiCorp for two wind projects.

Vestas will supply V136-4.2MW turbines that will be operating in 4.3MW power-optimised mode for TB Flats I and II projects.

Located in Wyoming, US, the projects will have a combined capacity of 503MW, including previously purchased V110-2.0MW turbines.

Vestas US and Canada sales and service division president Chris Brown said: “We’re pleased PacifiCorp has selected our V136-4.2MW, operating in 4.3MW power-optimised mode for the TB Flats I and II projects.”

“Located in Wyoming, US, the projects will have a combined capacity of 503MW, including previously purchased V110-2.0MW turbines.”

TB Flats I and II wind projects are part of PacifiCorp’s $3.1bn investment plan, Energy Vision 2020 initiative. The initiative aims to repower existing projects and install 1,150MW of new wind resources by the end of next year.

The company also intends to build a 140-mile transmission line segment in Wyoming as part of the scheme.

Brown added: “With their Energy Vision 2020 initiative and commitment to expanding wind energy, PacifiCorp brings both the environmental and economic benefits of low-cost, competitive, and clean wind energy to their customers and communities.”

Vestas will also be responsible for the supply and commissioning of the turbines, with a 12-year AOM 4000 service agreement is also in place for optimised performance of the project.

The company intends to start delivery of the turbines in the second quarter of 2020, with commissioning to take place the fourth quarter of the same year.

Under the Energy Vision 2020, the two companies partnered earlier to repower the Marengo and Marengo II wind projects in Washington.

This project saw Marengo and Marengo II wind farms’ V80-1.8MW turbines replaced with V100-2.0MW turbines.
