Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has received a 301 MW order from TransAlta Corporation to power 2 wind projects i.e. White Rock East and White Rock West in Oklahoma, USA.

The order consists of 33 V162-6.0 MW turbines and one V136-3.45 MW turbine at White Rock East and 16 V162-6.0 MW turbines and one V136-3.45 MW turbine at White Rock West, respectively.

Commenting on winning the order, Laura Beane, President of Vestas North America, said “In our pursuit to quickly and effectively scale the wind industry in the US, Vestas is thrilled to partner with TransAlta to deliver clean energy to Oklahoma.”

“We’re eager to leverage the EnVentus platform, the latest generation of Vestas technology aimed to deliver a higher level of performance for each unique wind site, at the collective White Rock Wind Project,” Laura added.

“White Rock East and White Rock West will collectively be the largest wind project we have undertaken and is an excellent addition to our company’s expanding wind portfolio. We are excited to be partnering with Vestas to enable such a significant investment for the company,” said John Kousinioris, President and CEO of TransAlta Corporation.

Further, the two orders include supply and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance of the asset.
