Vestas V90 1.8MW turbine: chosen by We Energies

US: We Energies has handed Vestas a contract to supply 81 V90 1.8MW turbines for its Glacier Hills 145MW wind farm in Wisconsin.

Vestas said the turbines are due to be delivered early next year with the project due to be brought online by early-2011. The order includes a two-year servicing agreement.

We Energies first bought two Vestas V47-660 turbines in 1999 for its project in Byron, Wisconsin. In 2007, Vestas delivered 88 V82 1.65MW turbines for the Blue Sky Green Field project that went online in 2008.

Speaking about the decision to bring in Vestas, Rick Kuester, executive vice president of Wisconsin Energy Corporation, the parent company of We Energies said: "Our experience with the Vestas V82 turbine at our Blue Sky Green Field project has surpassed projections.

"The Vestas V90-1.8 delivers the lowest overall cost for customers and is a good fit with the wind resource at the site."
