Vestas has received a 99 MW order for 55 V100-1.8 MW turbines for a wind-energy project in British Columbia, Canada.

The contract includes delivery and commissioning along with a 10-year service and maintenance agreement. Delivery is scheduled for mid-2012 and commissioning is expected in late 2012.

“As Canada’s leading supplier of wind turbines, we are happy to continue to help provide more clean power to a province that strongly supports renewable energy,” said Martha Wyrsch, President of Vestas Americas.

Vestas’ production facilities in Colorado will manufacture the main components of the turbines for this order. The blades will be made in Windsor, towers in Pueblo and nacelles assembled in Brighton. Vestas has about 1,500 manufacturing employees in Colorado.

Six Vestas customers have ordered V100-1.8 MW turbines in the last six months for projects in the United States and Canada. This is the fifth order announced for wind projects in Canada in 2010.
