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: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
