Denmark-based wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has secured a contract to supply turbines with a total generating capacity of 102MW for a wind energy project in California, US.
Located in Tehachapi, Kern County, the power project is owned by Brookfield Renewable Power and Coram California Development Management.
Under the contract, Vestas will deliver and commission 34 units of the V90-3MW turbine, and the order also includes a two-year service and maintenance agreement.
The turbines are expected to be delivered in the second half of this year, with commissioning in late 2011.
Brookfield Renewable Power COO of US operations Kim Osmars said that completion of this wind energy project will bring Brookfield’s North American wind portfolio to more than 600MW of installed capacity by the end of this year.
