October 2 (Renewables Now) - Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) rounded up the third quarter with 226 MW of orders in North America and a 38-MW order in Japan.
On Friday, Vestas unveiled a 90-MW order to repower an undisclosed US wind project with 20 V150-4.5 MW wind turbines. The contract covers supply, delivery and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a multi-year service agreement. Delivery of the machines will start in the second quarter of 2024, with commissioning planned for the final quarter of the same year.
The manufacturer noted it has repowered more than 1 GW of projects in the US in the last five years.
On the same day, Vestas also announced a 38-MW order from repeat customer Toda Corp (TYO:1860) to equip the Iwaki Miwa wind farm in Japan’s Fukushima prefecture with nine of its V117-4.2 MW turbines. Toda Corp will build the wind farm for JR East Energy Development Co Ltd.
The deal, including a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, calls for turbine delivery to start in the first quarter of 2026. Commissioning is planned for later that year.
Also last week, Vestas said it has secured 136-MW order to provide 22 EnVentus V162-6.2 MW wind turbines for an undisclosed wind project in Canada. It will supply, deliver and commission the turbines, with delivery starting in the third quarter of 2024 and commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2024. The contract also includes a multi-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
