Vestas lands wind turbines deal with First Reserve

Vestas has secured an agreement with First Reserve to supply wind turbines for the 298 MW Kingfisher Wind project in Oklahoma.

According to the agreement, Vestas will supply 149 V100-2.0 MW of wind turbines to First Reserve.

Once the construction will be completed by 2015, First Reserve will acquire the project from Apex Clean Energy.

Apex is responsible for the development, construction and asset management of the project.


The Kingfisher Wind project will have a strong, consistent wind resource.

The project’s wind turbine order comprises supply and commissioning as well as a 10-year Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service agreement.

AOM 5000 includes an energy-based availability guarantee, which ensures that turbines are operational when the wind is blowing.

This is the first agreement of Vestas with First Reserve for the Kingfisher project.

On completion, this plant will be one of the two largest single-phase wind projects in Oklahoma.

Earlier, Vestas supplied 49 V100-2.0 MW turbines to Apex for the Hoopeston Wind project in Illinois, which got later acquired by IKEA.

In another development, Vestas has won a turbine supply deal for a 36 MW wind project in the Lodzkie region of Poland. Vestas will be responsible for delivery, installation and commissioning of 12 of its V112 3 MW turbines.
