As part of the order, Vestas will deliver and commission 99 units of V90-1.8MW turbines for two wind-energy projects.

The contract also includes five-year service and maintenance agreements, and the projects will be built under Ontario’s feed-in tariff (FIT) program.

Delivery for both projects is scheduled for the second half of next year and commissioning expected by late 2012.

Ontario’s FIT offers stable prices under long-term contracts from renewable-energy sources such as wind.

Vestas-Canadian Wind Technology president Martha Wyrsch said the V90-1.8MW, which is designed for areas with medium wind speeds, will provide enough electricity to power 60,000 Ontario homes.
