Wind turbine-maker Vestas has scooped up no less than three turbine orders in the US in the past week, although the renewable energy giant isn’t naming the purchasers, but the combined order of 601MW bodes well for the company’s US aspirations.

The second announcement came at the end of the week, with a further confirmed order of 183 MW of V120-2.2MW turbines for a wind project with a number of turbines operating in 2.0MW. Including previously purchased 2MW platform components, the project has a total nameplate capacity of 202MW.

Then the wind power solutions provider confirmed a further order for 149 MW of turbines, consisting of 12 V110-2.0 MW turbines and 57 V120-2.2 MW turbines, taking the one-week haul to just over 600MW in new wind energy.

The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a multi-year service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project. Turbine delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2020 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.

The latest order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 10-year service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project. Turbine commissioning is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.
