Vestas has secured a four-year service and maintenance renewal contract from Milwaukee-based utility We Energies for a combined 180 wind turbines at three wind power plants in Wisconsin. The agreement, which begins near the end of this year, covers 309 MW worth of wind turbines at the Glacier Hills, Blue Sky Green Field and Byron sites.

Vestas began its partnership with We Energies in 1999, supplying the utility its first wind turbines, two V47-660 kW units, in Byron. Vestas then provided 88 V82-1.65 MW turbines for the Blue Sky Green Field project in northeast Fond du Lac County that went online in 2008. In December 2011, the partnership finished its most recent project, the Glacier Hills Wind Park, which consists of 90 V90-1.8 MW turbines near the towns of Randolph and Scott.
