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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
