By utilising our proven and robust 4 MW technology, Vestas looks forward to expanding wind energy in the great state of Texas alongside Omega Energia, and overseeing the successful, long-term operations of the Goodnight I wind project,” said Laura Beane, President of Vestas North America.
“Omega Energia could not have chosen a better partner to start operations in the United States. Vestas is a first-rate company, and we have extreme confidence to rely on Vestas turbines for our first project in Texas, Goodnight 1,” said Antonio Bastos, founder of Omega Energia.
The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines. Turbine delivery begins in the second quarter of 2023 with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2023.
