Vestas has received an order from International Power Canada for 27 units of the V90-1.8MW wind turbine for the Pointe Aux Roches project in southwestern Ontario, Canada.

The turbines will be delivered in late 2010, with commissioning for the 49MW project expected by the first half of 2011. The order also includes a five-year service and maintenance agreement.

The Pointe Aux Roches project will be built under Ontario’s Feed-in Tariff (FIT) program, which offers stable prices under long-term contracts from renewable-energy sources such as wind, Vestas said.

Vestas and International Power Canada first worked together in 2006 on a project built using Ontario’s Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program, which now consists of 24 clean-energy producing V82-1.65MW turbines.

International Power Canada is also nearing completion on the Harrow project consisting of 24 units of the V82-1.65MW turbine near Lake Erie in Ontario scheduled for commissioning in May this year.
