By Anthony Capkun
December 13, 2013 – Vestas has received a 24MW order for a dozen V100-2.0MW wind turbines from Juwi Wind Canada Ltd. for four projects in Nova Scotia—Truro Heights, Millbrook, Whynotts and Chebucto Pockwock—with deliveries expected mid-2014, and commissioning in the second half of the year.
“We welcome Juwi Wind as a new North American customer for Vestas, and are confident they will achieve great return on its investment with the V100-2.0 MW,” said Chris Brown, president of Vestas’ sales and service division in Canada and the U.S.
Vestas’ nacelle factory in Colorado will assemble the hub and nacelle for these projects, while the blades and towers will come from the company’s European factories.
“Juwi Wind is pleased to expand our global relationship with Vestas with deliveries to our first projects in Canada,” said Michael Rucker, president of Juwi Wind Canada. “With the V100, Vestas is delivering a flexible and well-tuned product for the community fixed feed-in tariff market in Nova Scotia.”
