LCG, March 31, 2017--Vestas announced yesterday its first order with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners for 43 V126-3.45 MW turbines in the United States. The firm and unconditional order totaling 148 MW is CIP's first equity investment in onshore wind in the U.S. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines, together with a 20-year service agreement.

The turbines will be installed at the Bearkat I Wind Project in Texas. Delivery is expected to begin later this year in the third quarter, with commissioning planned for the end of 2017. Bearkat I has a total capacity of 196.7 MW and will include 57 V126 3.45 MW turbines.

The President of Vestas' sales and service division in the United States and Canada stated, "We are honored to partner with CIP on their first investment in the U.S. and expand our 3 MW platform footprint even further. Texas and the rest of the wind belt are traditionally 2 MW territory, but we've shown yet again that we can deliver a winning cost of energy in that region with both our 2 MW and 3 MW platforms and that provides tremendous flexibility and competitive advantage for our customers."
