BHE Renewables, an affiliate of Berkshire Hathaway Energy, has placed a firm and unconditional order for 140 MW of V110-2.0 MW wind turbine components that enable future project pipeline.
The wind turbines add to Vestas’ growing portfolio with BHE Renewables and will be manufactured at Vestas’ Colorado factories.
“This order grows our portfolio with BHE Renewables and we are proud of the continued trust they show Vestas. We look forward to working together with BHE Renewables to deploy more low-cost reliable wind energy in the U.S.”, said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada.
Vestas and BHE Renewables announced their first order in 2015, with the 400 MW Grande Prairie project. Grande Prairie is the largest wind project in Nebraska and recently achieved commercial operation.
Berkshire Hathaway Energy owns one of the largest renewable energy portfolios in the U.S., with BHE Renewables overseeing the unregulated renewable energy portion of their portfolio. Berkshire Hathaway Energy also owns a portfolio of other energy businesses including the utilities PacifiCorp, MidAmerican Energy Company, and NV Energy.
