Vestas has received an order from Xcel Energy for 53MW of V110-2.0 MW turbine components. The firm order serves as the PTC Safe Harbor order for the proposed 600MW Rush Creek project, and will be delivered to Xcel Energy in December 2016.
The order follows a conditional agreement to supply up to 300 V110-2.0MW turbines for the 600MW Rush Creek Wind Project. Xcel Energy filed an application for approval of the project with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in May 2016. The turbine nacelles, blades, and towers will be produced at Vestas' Colorado factories.
Further a consortium of Holcim (Deutschland) GmbH and mdp GmbH has placed an order for 16 V112-3.3MW turbines for the Rethwisch wind power plant in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. The order comprises an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contract along with a 20-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 5000) and VestasOnline Business SCADA solution. Wind turbine delivery and commissioning is planned to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016.
