Denmark-based Vestas has secured two 53MW wind turbine contracts in the US and Germany.
The company will deliver V110 2.0MW turbine components to Xcel Energy, as part of an agreement to deliver up to 300 units for the 600MW Rush Creek project in Colorado.
The required turbines, nacelles, blades and towers will all be produced at Vestas’ facilities in Colorado.
Xcel Energy Colorado president David Eves said: "Our partnership with Vestas in securing turbines for the proposed Rush Creek Wind Project is an integral part of the overall ‘Our Energy Future’ vision for the state of Colorado."
In Germany, a consortium of Holcim (Deutschland) and mdp will receive 16 V112 3.3MW turbines for the Rethwisch wind farm in Schleswig-Holstein.
The order includes an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract along with a 20-year full-scope service agreement (AOM 5000) and VestasOnline Business Scada solution.
Vesta expects to delivery and commission the turbines in the fourth quarter of this year. The company said the Rethwisch project is its first large-scale EPC project in Germany.
mdp managing director Hans Helmut Kutzeer said: "We chose Vestas’ EPC offering because it enables us to focus our time and resources on our core competency – project development – and thereby increase our efficiency."
