Vestas has received a 135 MW order to power an undisclosed wind project in the U.S. The order consists of thirty V163-4.5 MW turbines, Vestas’ newest high-capacity factor turbine. The  project has been developed by Steelhead Americas, Vestas’ North American development arm.

The order includes supply, delivery, and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure performance of the asset.

Turbine delivery begins in third quarter of 2024 with commissioning set for 2025.

Highlighting its focus on project development in key markets, Steelhead Americas led all development efforts including permitting, land acquisition, and construction design to deliver to the customer a project that is ready for construction and installation.

Steelhead leverages Vestas’ industry expertise and turbine technology to advance in existing markets and unlock new geographic markets to expand renewable energy across North America.
