Vestas Wind Systems, a Danish manufacturer, seller, installer, and servicer of wind turbines, has secured contract to supply for 55 V100-1.8MW wind turbines totalling to 99MW for a wind-energy project in British Columbia (B.C.), Canada.

In addition, Vestas will be responsible for the delivery and commissioning of the turbines along with a 10-year service and maintenance agreement.

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

The company is planning to deliver the wind turbines for the project in mid-2012 and commissioning is expected to take place in late 2012.

This order marks Vestas’ fifth deal for wind projects in Canada in 2010, with the firm securing order for V100-1.8MW turbines from six customers in the last six months for projects in the US and Canada.
