Vestas Fielding Wind Turbine Orders East and West

On the heels of Vestas receiving a U.S. order for almost 40 of its V80-1.8 MW wind turbines last week, it now announces a Chinese request for two orders — each consisting of 25 units of V80-2.0 MW wind turbines — for a 100 MW wind power project in China.

The Chinese order has been placed by Datang Chifeng Saihanba Wind Power Co., Ltd., a state-owned utility and developer and among the “big five” in China’s electric power sector. The orders comprise supply of complete turbines including towers as well as commissioning, VestasOnline SCADA system and a two-year maintenance and service agreement. Delivery of the turbines will begin in the second half of 2007, and the project will be located in Chifeng in Inner Mongolia. Thorbjorn N. Rasmussen, President of Vestas Asia Pacific A/S said, “We look forward to supplying the wind turbines from our Chinese manufacturing facility in Tianjin.” In last week’s announcement, the Vestas Group received a U.S. order for 70 MW from PacifiCorp for 39 units of V80-1.8 MW wind turbines to be delivered in the first quarter of 2008 for the second phase of the Marengo project in the state of Washington. Vestas will supply and commission the 39 V80-1.8 MW wind turbines; the order includes a four-year maintenance and service agreement. The first phase of the Marengo project was purchased by PacifiCorp in October 2006 and is scheduled for commercial operation in August 2007. The second phase of the project will be located on adjacent land, with construction scheduled to begin in the spring of 2008. “Vestas is delighted to have been selected again by PacifiCorp as a key supplier in the further addition of wind energy to their generation portfolio,” said Jens Soby, President of Vestas Americas A/S.
