Vestas has divested the Delta wind farm in the state of Mississippi to energy company AES, according to a press release issued Thursday by the turbine manufacturer’s US subsidiary, Vestas-American Wind Technology.

The project is being developed by Steelhead Americas, a project development company owned by Vestas.

The turbine maker calls the divestment ”a milestone” in the efforts to expand its presence within renewable energy development and unlock the potential of the US market.

Delta is the first wind project in Mississippi, demonstrating the company’s ”role in opening new wind markets across the US.”

Steelhead Americas has developed the project from scratch.

”By adding development to our industry-leading technology and operations portfolio, we’ve deployed our industry expertise across a wider range of the renewable value chain,” says Vice President of Development for Vestas North America Chris Rogers in the press release.

Vestas’ North American project development company has more than 3GW of renewable energy projects in its pipeline. This is an added benefit for the traditional wind turbine division at Vestas.

Since its founding in 2016, the company has secured more than 3,350MW of turbine orders in North America through development and co-development.
