Danish turbine maker Vestas has received an order in the US for 86MW.

The order comes from Sacramento Municipal Utility District and consists of 19 turbines of the V150-4.5MW model.

This comes as part of a so-called repowering order, which involves taking down old turbines at the Solano Wind Project Phase 4 in California and replacing them with the new set.

The old turbines were also supplied by Vestas, all of them being V47-660kW units.

Vestas will provide a full turn-key solution with delivery, installation and commissioning of the turbines.

Also included in the deal is a ten-year AOM 5000 service agreement, the most extensive in Vestas’ array.

Delivery of the turbines for Solano 4 is slated for Q4 of 2023, with commissioning expected in the second quarter of 2024.
