Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for its first repowering project in the U.S.

The order includes 29 MW of V110-2.0 MW turbine components that will enable future repowering efforts within the undisclosed customer’s operating project portfolio.

The turbine components, which will be manufactured at Vestas’ Colorado factories, will be delivered beginning in 2017.

Vestas says repowering existing and aging wind projects with new technology is expected to increase over the coming years, considering repowering offers substantial returns from increased annual energy production and reduced operating costs.
