Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for 131 MW of production tax credit (PTC)-qualifying turbine components.
The order includes qualifying components compatible with a variety of turbines across the 2 MW and 3 MW platforms.
Delivery of the wind turbine components is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of this year. At the customer’s request, the details surrounding the project have not been disclosed, notes Vestas. Multiple components will be produced at Vestas’ Colorado factories.
“We are pleased to announce this PTC Safe Harbor order, which will enable our customer to qualify a substantial portfolio of projects for 100 percent of the production tax credit value,” says Chris Brown, president of Vestas’ sales and service division in the U.S. and Canada. “This versatile component mix will provide high competitiveness during this PTC window and will enable our customer to deliver even more cost-effective wind energy to ratepayers throughout North America.”
