Vestas has received a 140 MW order to power the Halkirk II wind project owned by Capital Power in Alberta. The order consists of 31 V150-4.5 MW wind turbines, and includes supply, delivery, and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a 10-year ‘Active Output Management’ 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, intended to ensure optimised performance of the asset.

Laura Beane, president of Vestas North America, commented: “The 4 MW platform is ideally suited for Alberta’s wind environment and our … service operations will ensure Capital Power’s projects operate at full capacity.”

“We’re excited to once again partner with Vestas for the supply of wind turbine technology for our Halkirk II Wind project, another critical facet of our balanced approach to net zero by 2045,” said Steve Owens, senior VP, Construction and Engineering for Capital Power. “The V150-4.5 MW wind turbines will bring our Halkirk II Wind project to life as we continue to power a sustainable future for people and planet.”

Turbine delivery is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2024 with commissioning scheduled for fourth quarter 2024.
