Vestas has received an order from Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. (RES Americas) for 139 V90-1.8 MW turbines for the Cedar Point Wind project, located in Colorado. Commercial operation of Cedar Point Wind is expected in 2011.
Enbridge Inc. recently announced that it will invest $500 million in the project, which RES Americas will construct under a fixed-price engineering, procurement and construction contract.
Vestas recently opened three manufacturing facilities in Colorado to provide wind turbines for North American customers: a blades factory in Windsor, a nacelles-assembly factory in Brighton and a tower manufacturing facility in Pueblo. A second blade factory is planned for 2011 in Brighton.
