Vestas secures 24 MW order for four projects in Canada

Vestas has received a 24 MW order for 12 V100-2.0 MW wind turbines from juwi Wind Canada Ltd. for four projects in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Deliveries for all projects — Truro Heights, Millbrook, Whynotts and Chebucto Pockwock — are expected to occur in mid-2014 with commissioning in the second half of next year.

“We welcome juwi Wind as a new North American customer for Vestas and are confident they will achieve great return on its investment with the V100-2.0 MW,” said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in Canada and the United States. “We have already delivered turbines this year to eight different projects in Canada to help solidify our No. 1 position in the country. We look forward to doing more in 2014 with juwi Wind and other customers.”

Vestas’ nacelle factory in Colorado will assemble the hub and nacelle for these projects while the blades and towers will come from the company’s European factories.

“Juwi Wind is pleased to expand our global relationship with Vestas with deliveries to our first projects in Canada,” said Michael Rucker, President of juwi Wind Canada. “With the V100, Vestas is delivering a flexible and well-tuned product for the community fixed feed-in tariff market in Nova Scotia. We look forward to future project opportunities with Vestas in Canada and throughout North America.”

Vestas has previously supplied turbines to juwi Wind for projects in Germany.

The projects will have five-year service agreements using Active Output Management (AOM) 5000. AOM 5000 is an energy-based availability guarantee that ensures the turbines are operational when the wind is blowing. This service option includes the VestasOnline® surveillance system that remotely controls and monitors the turbines and predicts potential wear-and-tear issues. This allows Vestas to plan maintenance so the turbines operate with the minimum amount of lost production.

This year, Vestas has received over 900 MW of orders in the United States and Canada among four turbine types.
