Vestas has received an order for 24 V90-1.8 MW turbines from Oak Glen Wind Farm, LLC, for a wind project near Blooming Prairie, Minnesota, USA. Oak Glen Wind Farm, LLC, is a subsidiary of the Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (MMPA). Avant Energy, Inc., of Minneapolis is managing the project.

The contract includes delivery and commissioning of the turbines along with a five-year service and maintenance agreement. Delivery is scheduled for late summer 2011 and commissioning is expected by the end of next year.

“The V90-1.8 MW turbine is specifically designed to provide maximum power output at sites with medium wind speeds,” said Martha Wyrsch, President of Vestas Americas. “Minnesota is one of the leading states for wind power, and we are excited to help create more clean, reliable energy here. This project also will result in construction jobs and long-term local maintenance positions to be hired by Vestas.”

Formed in 1992, MMPA supplies electric power to its 11-member communities, all of which are located in Minnesota. MMPA is committed to renewable power production. Employee-owned Avant Energy has provided energy management services to public power utilities, universities, and large energy users for more than 20 years.

This is Vestas’ 12th North American deal announced in 2010, totaling 1,655 MW among four turbine types. Six Vestas customers have ordered V90-1.8 MW turbines this year for projects in the United States and Canada.
