Delta wind power project in Mississippi

Vestas has sold the 183 MW Delta wind project wind project to The AES Corporation, a global energy company. Financial details were not disclosed.

The Delta wind power project is developed by Steelhead Americas, North American development arm of Vestas. The sale marks a key milestone in Vestas’ efforts to expand its presence in the renewable energy development in US markets.

The Delta project, located in Mississippi, US, is the state’s first wind energy project and demonstrates Vestas’ role in opening new wind markets across the US.

“We are excited to develop the first wind project in Mississippi and look forward to bringing more wind energy to the region,” said Chris Rogers, Vice President of Development for Vestas North America.

Vestas aims to enable future growth of renewable energy assets in North America with over 3 GW of renewable energy projects in the pipeline. Steelhead Americas has supported Vestas in securing over 3,350 MW of North American turbine orders since its formation in 2016.
