MidAmerican Energy to order wind turbines for Iowa project

by Jody Barhanovich

Vestas Wind Systems has received an order to develop wind turbines for MidAmerican Energy Co., the largest utility owner of wind energy in the United States, as part of the 2,000-megawatt Wind XI project in Iowa.

MidAmerican Energy is purchasing V110-2.0 MW turbines to produce 153 megawatts of energy. The turbines will be manufactured at Vestas’ Colorado factories with expected delivery in 2017.

“By employing wind energy, the Wind XI project will bring clean, domestic, low-cost energy to MidAmerican customers as well as hundreds of millions of dollars in economic benefits to Iowa communities and long-term American jobs through the manufacturing, construction, and operations of Wind XI,” says Chris Brown, president of sales and service division in the United States and Canada at Vestas.

Wind XI follows MidAmerican Energy’s commitment to providing customers with 100 percent renewable energy generation. MidAmerican Energy, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway
