The order for Vestas, the leading wind turbine supplier in the world, consists of 33 V162-6.0 MW turbines and one V136-3.45 MW turbine at White Rock East and 16 V162-6.0 MW turbines and one V136-3.45 MW turbines at White Rock West, respectively.

“We’re eager to leverage the EnVentus platform, the latest generation of Vestas technology aimed to deliver a higher level of performance for each unique wind site, at the collective White Rock Wind Project,” Laura Beane, President of Vestas North America, said.

”White Rock East and White Rock West will collectively be the largest wind project we have undertaken and is an excellent addition to our company’s expanding wind portfolio. We are excited to be partnering with Vestas to enable such a significant investment for the company,” said John Kousinioris, President and CEO of TransAlta.

Both orders include supply and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure optimized performance of the asset.

Vestas said it will start the delivery of wind turbine for both projects in the fourth quarter of 2022 while commissioning will be in the third quarter of 2023.
