Vestas acquires Colorado land for facility extension

UNITED STATES: Vestas has acquired land in Colorado as part of its plan to extend its Windsor blade manufacturing plant.

The turbine manufacturer has purchased 80 acres to the east of the facility, which is located near Greeley, according to reports. The deal cost $2.5million.

The Coloradoan quoted a representative from the company who sold the property to Vestas. He said the land would be used to store blades for a "recent order".

He added that although the property was zoned for agriculture usage, Greeley authorities had given Vestas a temporary industrial usage permit.

In July, New York-based developer Terra-Gen Power signed a 570MW order with Vestas for 190 V90-3.0 MW turbines, which would be made at the Windsor plant. It is the largest order Vestas has received for a single site.
