TransAlta, Canada, has placed an order for 23 units of the V90-3.0 MW wind turbine to be installed at the company’s Ardenville wind farm in southern Alberta, Canada. The order for the 23 turbines, which will have an installed capacity of 69 MW, follows an order from TransAlta in May 2008 for 22 units of the V90-3.0 MW turbine.

“The V90-3.0 MW turbine is currently the largest wind turbine in commercial operation in North America. This order is further proof that Vestas will continue to play an important role in the development of Canada’s wind-generating capacity,” says Scott Gros, Senior Vice President of Sales at Vestas Americas. “We are delighted that TransAlta has once again chosen Vestas as their preferred turbine supplier and we look forward to continuing the working relationship with a long-standing partner of ours.”

Headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, TransAlta is among Canada’s largest non-regulated power generation companies and a leading Canadian generator of wind power.

The 23 units of the V90-3.0 MW wind turbine for the Ardenville wind farm will be supplied and commissioned by Vestas, with delivery in mid-2010 and commissioning scheduled to be completed in early 2011. The order includes a five-year service and maintenance agreement.

As of December 31, 2008, Vestas had supplied wind turbines with a total installed capacity of over 1,100 MW to Canadian wind power plants. The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) has presented their vision for wind energy development in Canada. The plan “Wind Vision 2025 – Powering Canada’s Future” argues that wind power can supply 20 percent of Canada’s electricity demand by 2025. This would bring total Canadian wind energy capacity to 55,000 MW. According to CanWEA, Canada currently has 2,369 MW of wind-generating capacity in place.
