Vestas takes 110MW Texas turbine order

Planned wind park will power 33,000 homes

Vestas has announced in a press release that it has received an order from the American company Duke Energy Renewables for 55 of its  V110-2 MW turbines to be installed in Texas.

The turbines will be used in the Los Vientos V project in Starr County in the southern part of the state. 

This is the latest in a run of large orders in recent months.

Fruitful partnership
The order follows orders of 200 MW at both the Los Vientos III and Los Vientos IV projects in September 2013.

Los Vientos V is expected to produce enough green electricity to power about 33,000 homes. The project is set for completion in late 2015.

Chris Brown, the head of sales and service for Vestas in the United States and Canada, expressed his satisfaction with the continued co-operation between Vestas and Duke.

“Today’s announcement brings our total presence in the Los Vientos complex to 510 MW,” he said.

”Duke Energy is one of the top wind players in the competitive US market, and we look forward to continuing to build on the excellent partnership between our two companies.”
