Vestas, a Denmark-headquartered wind turbine manufacturer, has received an order for 56 units of V80-1.80 MW turbines to be delivered in the third quarter of 2007 for the Smoky Hills project located in Kansas.
The 100 MW order was placed by Enel North America Inc., a subsidiary of Enel SpA that owns and operates renewable energy plants in North America. Vestas will supply, install and commission the wind turbines, the company says. The order includes a five-year maintenance and service agreement.
‘Vestas is delighted to secure another order with Enel, and we look forward to growing our relationship in North America,’ says Jens Soby, Vestas' president. ‘We are also very pleased that large international utilities now are making long-term commitments to the North American market.’
