Vestas has bagged a 126 MW order to repower Apex Clean Energy’s Downeast Wind project in Maine, USA, featuring 30 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines. The order encompasses turbine supply, delivery, commissioning, and a multi-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement to maximize asset performance. Turbine shipments will start in Q2 2024, and the commissioning is slated for Q4 2024.
“Our strong partnership with Apex Clean Energy continues to bring wind energy to local communities across the US and we look forward to the Downeast Wind project creating clean energy for the State of Maine,” said Laura Beane, President of Vestas North America. “With our industry-leading 4 MW platform, one of the most popular platforms sold globally, we’ll help bring Maine one step closer to achieving its goal of 80 percent of its energy coming from renewable sources by 2030 and 100 percent by 2050”.
“Our longstanding partnership with Vestas is pivotal to realising our mission to accelerate the shift to clean energy across the country,” added Ken Young, CEO of Apex Clean Energy. “As our portfolio expands, we remain committed to building renewable energy projects that not only accelerate the transition but also directly benefit the communities we work with”.
