Vestas wins 202MW wind turbine order from E.ON

17 Aug 2011

Vestas has secured an order from E.ON Climate & Renewables North America to supply turbines with a total capacity of 202MW for a wind energy project in the US.

The Danish wind turbine manufacturer will be responsible for delivery and commissioning of 112 units of its V100-1.8MW turbine.

The contract also includes a five-year service and maintenance agreement and Vestas' Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 maintenance program.

Delivery of the wind turbines is scheduled for the first half of 2012, with commissioning expected in mid-2012.

The power project is expected to generate enough electricity to power more than 60,000 American homes in a year.

According to Vestas, the AOM 4000 program includes all planned and unplanned maintenance services, and continuous remote monitoring and surveillance of the project via the VestasOnline SCADA system.
