Following a competitive process, Vestas has received a 350 MW order from Enel Green Power North America Inc. with potential for up to 636 MW more.

Under the deal, Vestas will supply 75 V100-2.0 MW turbines for the 150 MW Origin wind power plant in Oklahoma. Vestas and Enel also have signed an agreement for up to an additional 836 MW worth of 2 MW turbines, of which 200 MW is firm. Deliveries for Origin are expected to occur in mid-2014, and commissioning is slated by the end of next year.

Vestas’ factories in Colorado will be involved in manufacturing blades, nacelles and towers for the 350 MW order. To meet growing customer demand, the company recently announced plans to add more workers at three of its Colorado factories. Vestas says it is recruiting now and expects to add hundreds of production workers in the first half of 2014.

The Origin project will include a three-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement. The company says this service option includes the VestasOnline surveillance system that remotely controls and monitors the turbines and predicts potential wear-and-tear issues.

Vestas notes it has previously supplied wind turbines to Enel for three U.S. projects, most recently the 200 MW Caney River wind power plant in Kansas that was commissioned in 2011.
