Calgary, Alberta-based TransAlta has placed an order for 23 units of the V90-3.0 MW wind turbine to be installed at the company's Ardenville wind farm in southern Alberta.

The order for the 23 turbines, which will have an installed capacity of 69 MW, follows an order from TransAlta in May 2008 for 22 units of the V90-3.0 MW turbine.

"This order is further proof that Vestas will continue to play an important role in the development of Canada's wind-generating capacity," says Scott Gros, senior vice president of sales at Vestas Americas.

The 23 units of the V90-3.0 MW wind turbine for the Ardenville wind farm will be supplied and commissioned by Vestas, with delivery in mid-2010 and commissioning scheduled to be completed in early 2011. The order includes a five-year service and maintenance agreement.
