Vestas, a leading wind turbine manufacturer, has bagged a 139 MW order to repower a project owned by Vitol in Pennsylvania, USA. The order involves the delivery of 68 V110-2.0 MW wind turbines operating in 2.05 MW mode, which will replace the existing Senvion MM92-2.05 MW turbines on-site.
In addition to turbine supply and delivery, Vestas will handle the commissioning process. The agreement also includes a comprehensive 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service contract, ensuring optimal performance of the repowered asset.
Turbine deliveries are scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2024 and the commissioning is planned for the fourth quarter of the same year.
“We are pleased to build upon our strong partnership with Vitol to successfully repower wind projects across the US. This project is another example of collaboration between Vestas and Vitol to extend the production lifespan of aging fleets with customised solutions for specific site conditions utilising Vestas’s proven technology,” said Laura Beane, President of Vestas North America.
Andrew de Pass, Head of Renewable and Sustainable Energy, Vitol Inc added, “Vitol will continue to invest in renewables across the US. Across all our assets, we believe in optimising performance through investment and improvement. We are pleased to be working with Vestas on another repowering project”.
