Denmark-based Vestas has secured a firm and unconditional order for 131MW of production tax credit (PTC) qualifying turbine components.
The deal requires Vestas to supply components compatible with wind turbine platforms ranging between 2MW and 3MW.
The company will manufacture several components at its factories in Colorado. Vestas expects to start components delivery in the fourth quarter of this year.
Vestas US and Canada sales and service division president Chris Brown said: “We are pleased to announce this PTC Safe Harbor order, which will enable our customer to qualify a substantial portfolio of projects for 100 percent of the Production Tax Credit value.
“This versatile component mix will provide high competitiveness during this PTC window, and will enable our customer to deliver even more cost-effective wind energy to rate payers throughout North America.”
Vestas says it withheld the name of the customer and the project at client’s request.
According to the Danish company, it has installed over 8GW of 3MW capacity and 18GW of 2MW wind turbines, both offshore and onshore.
The number of wind turbines from Vestas, installed world over is more than 57,300 which reduce more than 82 million tons of carbon dioxide from emissions every year. The total installed capacity of Vestas is about 75GW with presence in 75 countries.
