Vestas to Supply 166 MW Wind Capacity to RES Americas.
Renewable Energy Systems Americas has placed an order for 83, V100-2.0 MW turbines for the 200 MW Pleasant Valley Wind Project in Minnesota in the United States. The initial 34 MWs were announced in connection with signing the master supply agreement (MSA) with Vestas in September 2013.
Pleasant Valley will utilize the V100-2.0 MW turbine, which was launched to the market in 2013 and features an improved drive train and generates approximately 13 percent more annual energy production (AEP) than the V90-1.8 MW at medium wind speeds.
Pleasant Valley will have an annual energy production of approximately 804,000 MWh per year.
Deliveries and commissioning of the Pleasant Valley project are expected to take place in the fourth quarter of 2015. Vestas factories in Colorado are expected to be involved in the manufacturing of the nacelles, blades and towers for the project.
Since 1979, Vestas has supplied more than 51,000 wind turbines and over 60 GW in 73 countries – 52 percent more than its closest competitor.
