Vestas hooks 298MW Kingfisher
V100 turbines to be delivered this year at First Reserve/Apex wind farm
Vestas has won a 298MW turbine supply order in the US from investment outfit First Reserve.
The Danish manufacturer will deliver 149 of its V100 2MW machines to the Kingfisher wind farm in Oklahoma.
Hardware will arrive on site starting late this year. The supply-only deal also includes a 10-year service agreement.
First Reserve acquired the shovel-ready wind farm from Apex Clean Energy. The original developer will manage construction and tackle operations.
“We are excited to secure our first agreement with First Reserve for the Kingfisher project,” said Chris Brown, Vestas president of sales and service in the US and Canada.
“The participation by a diversified energy investor such as First Reserve is a sign that our industry is mature and evolving.”
