Vestas has received an order for the second phase of the Solano wind project in Rio Vista, California.
The 63MW order, consisting of 21 units of the V90-3.0MW wind turbine, has been placed by Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) in California. Phase one of the project consisted of 8 units of V90-3.0MW turbines and was commissioned in early 2006. The order is a turnkey order, and Vestas will supply, install and commission the wind turbines as well as provide maintenance and service for a five-year period. Shipment of the first turbines will begin in the fourth quarter of 2007, with the commissioning date set for the second quarter of 2008.
