Vestas has received a 202 MW order from E.ON Climate & Renewables North America for 112 V100-1.8 MW turbines for a wind-energy project in the USA. The project’s name and specific location will be disclosed at a later date. The contract includes delivery and commissioning along with a five-year service and maintenance agreement. Delivery is scheduled for the first half of 2012 and commissioning is expected in mid-2012.

“We are excited to again work with one of the leading wind-power operators in the world to move this project forward,” said Martha Wyrsch, President of Vestas-American Wind Technology, Inc. “E.ON chose a turbine that is specifically designed to capture the lower wind speeds of this area.”

Once finished, the project will provide enough electricity to power more than 60,000 American homes in a year. It also will create construction and turbine-maintenance jobs.The contract includes Vestas’ Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 maintenance program. The AOM 4000 program guarantees turbine availability and includes all planned and unplanned maintenance services. AOM 4000 also includes continuous remote monitoring and surveillance of the project via the VestasOnline SCADA system.

E.ON is a leading renewable energy company headquartered in Chicago with development offices in Austin and Denver. E.ON Climate & Renewables North America is a subsidiary of E.ON AG, one of the world’s largest energy companies, and the largest investor-owned utility in the world. Vestas last worked with E.ON on the 180 MW Papalote Creek wind power plant in San Patricio County, Texas, which was finished in 2009 and consists of 109 V82-1.65 MW turbines. This order marks Vestas’ sixth North American deal announced in 2011, totaling 976 MW among three turbine types.
