Vestas Supplies Turbines for 125 MW Oregon Wind Farm

Vestas has received a U.S. order for 76 units of V82-1.65-megawatt (MW) MW wind turbines from Portland (Oregon) General Electric for the Biglow Canyon Phase I project, which was developed by Orion Energy LLC.

The turbines for the project will be delivered during 2007 and Vestas will supply and commission the wind turbines. The order also includes a four-year service and maintenance agreement. “Vestas is encouraged by the continuing growth of wind power in the US Pacific Northwest, and the order with Portland General Electric is a further strengthening of Vestas’ activities in the region,” said Jens Soeby, President of Vestas Americas A/S. This is to be the first wind power project that Portland General Electric will build, own and operate itself. The company currently purchases the entire output of two other wind power plants in Oregon. “We are very pleased to be working with Vestas on this project,” says Jim Lobdell, Portland General Electric’s Vice President of Power Operations and Resource Strategy. “Wind power will be an increasingly important part of our portfolio in the coming years, and Biglow Canyon Phase I will be a model for future developments.”
