Vestas has received an order for 111 V90-1.8 MW turbines from Enel Green Power North America Inc. for the Caney River wind project in Elk County, Kan.
The contract includes delivery and commissioning, along with a five-year service and maintenance agreement. Delivery is scheduled for the second half of this year, and commissioning is expected later this year.
Vestas' Colorado-based factories will be involved in manufacturing the blades and towers, as well as nacelle and hub assembly for the project, which will be the third-largest wind farm in Kansas.Â
Vestas and Enel previously teamed up on the first phase of the Smoky Hills wind project near Salina, Kan., which was completed in 2008 using 56 V80-1.8 MW turbines. Enel also purchased Vestas turbines for a 63 MW project near Snyder, Texas, which was also commissioned in 2008.
