Vestas receives order for 67 units of V80-1.8 MW wind turbines for Texas, USA

28.02.2005


The Vestas Group has received an order to supply and commission 67 units of V80-1.8 MW wind turbines for a 120 MW wind power project near Abilene, Texas from Buffalo Gap Wind Farm LLC, a project company developed by SeaWest Holdings, Inc.

The wind power plant will be commissioned by 31 December 2005. The parties have entered into a turbine supply agreement and a warranty, maintenance and service agreement. Recently, AES Corporation, a major international power company headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, announced its plans to acquire SeaWest Holdings, Inc. and combine this with its other recent investment in US Wind Force, LLC, in order to advance its goal to become a strong wind generation developer, operator and owner. With the recently announced acquisition, AES Corporation will have wind power projects operating or under development in 13 states in the US.

“We are pleased to be part of this project and AES Corporation’s entry into the US wind power market,” says Svend Sigaard, President and CEO of Vestas Wind Systems A/S and adds: “The market for wind power in the US is changing. An increasing number of major utilities and developers like AES Corporation are focusing on wind power – a trend we expect will have a positive impact on the market”.

Subject to a non-disclosure agreement with the customer, Vestas cannot reveal the value of the supply and service contracts. However, the value of the order does not affect the Vestas Group’s expectations for 2005, cf. Stock exchange announcement No. 45/2004 of 26 November 2004.

Any questions may be addressed to the Executive Management at Vestas Wind Systems A/S, telephone +45 9730 0000.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
