Vestas Secures 270 MW Order for V163-4.5 MW Wind Turbines in the USA

Vestas has received a 270 MW order to power an undisclosed wind project owned by a subsidiary of ENGIE North America in the USA. The order consists of 60 V163-4.5 MW wind turbines.

The order includes supply, delivery, and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a twenty-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance of the asset.

“We look forward to working with ENGIE as it expands its wind energy portfolio across the United States and continues to advance the clean energy transition. The V163-4.5 MW is our newest high-capacity factor turbine and is optimised for low to medium wind speeds making it ideally suited for the U.S. market,” said Laura Beane, President of Vestas North America.
