Detroit Edison has issued a request for prequalification to purchase wind turbine generation equipment to be installed at one or more wind farms that the electric utility is planning to develop.
The wind farms will be located in Michigan and are expected to have a total generating capacity ranging from 100 MW to 200 MW. Detroit Edison is seeking companies that provide wind turbines capable of producing a minimum of 1.5 MW each.
Qualified suppliers will be invited to submit a proposal during the next six to 12 months, but only companies that submit a response to the prequalification request will be considered.
Interested companies must register with PowerAdvocate at poweradvocate.com to view and respond to the prequalification request.
Detroit Edison has focused its wind farm development interest primarily in Huron County. To meet the state's 10% renewable portfolio standard, Detroit Edison will need about 1,200 MW of renewable energy, of which half can be owned by the electric utility.
Deadline: Sept. 3.
