Vestas to deliver 100 turbines to Xcel Energy project

Vestas

Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas is to deliver 100 of its V100-2.0-MW units to US utility Xcel Energy.

The turbines are to be installed at the 200-MW Courtenay wind project in North Dakota.

Vestas has also included a three-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service agreement in the deal.

The Courtenay project, originally developed by Minnesota-based Geronimo Energy, is to be commissioned in Stutsman County next year. On completion it will be able to generate adequate electricity to supply 105,000 households.

Xcel acquired the Courtenay project this April.
