Vestas, a global leader in clean energy solutions, has clinched a significant deal to power an undisclosed wind project under ENGIE North America subsidiary ownership in the United States. The order, totaling 270 MW, involves the supply of 60 V163-4.5 MW wind turbines, a testament to Vestas’ commitment to advancing renewable energy initiatives.
The scope of the order encompasses not only the delivery and commissioning of these high-tech turbines but also includes a substantial twenty-year service agreement, the Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000). This agreement is specifically crafted to ensure optimal and sustained performance of the wind farm asset over time.
Laura Beane, President of Vestas North America, expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration with ENGIE, stating, “We look forward to working with ENGIE as it expands its wind energy portfolio across the United States and continues to advance the clean energy transition. The V163-4.5 MW is our newest high-capacity factor turbine and is optimized for low to medium wind speeds making it ideally suited for the U.S. market.”
Dave Carroll, Chief Renewables Officer and Country Head at ENGIE North America, echoed this sentiment, highlighting the joint commitment to accelerating the energy transition in the region. “We are excited to collaborate with Vestas as we both focus on the acceleration of the energy transition in North America.”
The delivery of the turbines is slated to commence in the third quarter of 2024, with commissioning expected in the first quarter of 2025. This strategic partnership signifies a substantial leap towards bolstering clean energy initiatives in the US, marking a significant milestone in the pursuit of sustainable power solutions.
