Vestas books 200 MW turbine order

Vestas booked a 200 MW order for 111 V90-1.8 MW turbines from Enel Green Power North America Inc. for the Caney River wind energy 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 2011 and commissioning is expected in late 2011. The value of the contract was not disclosed.

Vestas' Colorado-based factories will manufacture the blades and towers, as well as nacelle and hub assembly.

Vestas and Enel previously teamed up on two other wind projects, including the first phase of the 100.8 MW Smoky Hills wind energy project in Kansas and a 63 MW wind project in Texas that was commissioned in 2008.
