Brookfield Renewable selects Vestas to provide 102 MW in California

Toronto-based renewable energy developer, Brookfield Renewable Power Inc. has executed an agreement with Vestas to supply turbines with a total generating capacity of 102MW for Brookfield’s 102 MW wind energy project in Tehachapi, Kern County, California, USA.

Under the agreement, Vestas will deliver and commission 34 units of the V90-3MW turbine. Brookfield and Vestas also entered into a two year service and maintenance agreement.

The turbines are expected to be delivered in the second half of this year, with commissioning in late 2011.

Brookfield Renewable Power COO of US operations Kim Osmars said that completion of this wind energy project will bring Brookfield's North American wind portfolio to more than 600MW of installed capacity by the end of this year.

Brookfield Renewable Power Inc. in partnership with three First Nations (James Smith Cree Nation, Chakastaypasin Band of the Cree Nation and Cumberland 100A First Nation/Peter Chapman Band) are developing the 250 MW Pehonan run-of-river project in Saskatchewan.
