E.ON Climate & Renewables North America has made an order for 112 V100-1.8 MW turbines for a project in the USA with Vestas. The turbines will combine to create a 202MW array.
Martha Wyrsch, President of Vestas-American Wind Technology, Inc. said: “E.ON chose a turbine that is specifically designed to capture the lower wind speeds of this area.”
Once finished, the project will provide enough electricity to power more than 60,000 American homes in a year. This order marks Vestas’ sixth North American deal announced in 2011, totaling 976 MW among three turbine types.
