Vestas has received an order for 459MW of V136-4.2MW turbines operating in 4.3MW power optimised mode from PacifiCorp, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Energy, for two wind projects, TB Flats I and II, located in Wyoming, USA. Including previously purchased V110-2.0 MW turbines, the projects will have a combined capacity of 503MW.
TB Flats I and II are part of PacifiCorp’s Energy Vision 2020 initiative, a US$ 3.1 billion investment to expand wind power via repowering existing projects, adding 1,150MW of new wind resources by the end of 2020, and building a 140-mile transmission line segment in Wyoming to enable wind generation.
The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as a 12-year service agreement. Turbine delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2020, with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.
