Vestas, which designs, manufactures, installs and services wind turbines across the globe, says it has secured three new turbine orders totaling 250 MW via three separate announcements.

The largest order is from BHE Renewables, an affiliate of Berkshire Hathaway Energy. According to Vestas, BHE Renewabes has placed a firm and unconditional order for 140 MW of V110-2.0 MW turbine components “that enable future project pipeline.”

“This order grows our portfolio with BHE Renewables, and we are proud of the continued trust they show Vestas. We look forward to working together with BHE Renewables to deploy more low-cost, reliable wind energy in the U.S.,” says Chris Brown, president of Vestas’ sales and service division in the U.S. and Canada.

Vestas and BHE Renewables announced their first order in 2015, with the 400 MW Grande Prairie project. Grande Prairie is the largest wind project in Nebraska and recently achieved commercial operation.

Berkshire Hathaway Energy owns one of the largest renewable energy portfolios in the U.S., with BHE Renewables overseeing the unregulated renewable energy portion of its portfolio. Berkshire Hathaway Energy also owns a portfolio of other energy businesses, including the utilities PacifiCorp, MidAmerican Energy Co. and NV Energy.

In another announcement, Vestas says it also received a firm and unconditional order for 40 MW of V110-2MW turbine components from an undisclosed client in the U.S.

Lastly, Vestas won another order to supply and commission 70 MW of various 2.0 MW compatible turbine components for a second unnamed customer.

All turbines will be produced at Vestas’ Colorado factories.
