Largest utility owner of wind energy in the U.S., MidAmerican Energy, orders 153 MW of V110-2.0 MW turbines as part of the 2,000 MW Wind XI project in Iowa.

With reference to Vestas Wind Systems A/Sí company announcement No. 22/2016 of 17 June 2016, Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order from MidAmerican Energy Company (MidAmerican), a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Energy, for 153 MW of V110-2.0 MW turbines.

The turbines will be manufactured at Vestasí Colorado factories with expected delivery in 2017. The order includes supply and commissioning of the wind turbines as well as a five-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service agreement: Vestasí full-scope service package maximizing uptime and energy production.

ďBy employing wind energy, the Wind XI project will bring clean, domestic, low-cost energy to MidAmerican customers as well as hundreds of millions of dollars in economic benefits to Iowa communities and long-term American jobs through the manufacturing, construction, and operations of Wind XIĒ, said Chris Brown, President of Vestasí sales and service division in the United States and Canada.

Wind XI follows MidAmericanís first of its kind utility commitment to providing customers with 100 percent renewable energy generation.

MidAmerican Energy Company, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Energy, is the largest regulated utility owner of wind energy in the United States. With the investment in Wind XI, the utility will generate 85 percent of its retail load from wind.

Potential future order intake under the 2,000 MW Wind XI project is expected to occur as partial deliveries under the master agreement and will be announced firm and unconditional consistent with Vestasí order announcement policy.
