Vestas receives order for a 150 MW wind power plant in Canada

The Vestas Group has received an order for 83 units of V80-1.8 MW wind turbines from SaskPower International Inc. in Canada.

The project will be located in Southwestern Saskatchewan in Canada and comprises turnkey supply, installation and maintenance of the turbines. The order has a value to Vestas of approximately mEUR 143. The project will be owned by SaskPower International Inc., located in Regina, Saskatchewan, the development arm of its parent company SaskPower. Vestas has previously supplied V47 wind turbines for SaskPower’s Cypress Wind Power Facility project near Gull Lake, Saskatchewan.

The 150 MW wind power plant will be installed and commissioned by December 2005. “The V80-1.8 MW wind turbine is well proven in Canada’s harsh climate conditions. It is therefore a natural choice for SaskPower International’s project,” says Svend Sigaard, President and CEO of Vestas Wind Systems A/S.

The above order does not affect the Vestas Group’s expectations for 2004, cf. Stock exchange announcement No. 33/2004 of 18 August 2004.
