Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has received an order for 80 wind turbines to be built in its factories in Colorado.
The 160 megawatt (MW) order comes from one of the company’s longstanding customers – EDF Energies Nouvelles / EDF Renewable Energy – and will involve the construction of 80 2.0 MW wind turbines.
The agreement will run between 2016 and 2019 and includes wind projects in Europe and the US.
“Since we signed our first major supply agreement with Vestas in 2013, EDF RE has installed more than two gigawatts’ worth of Vestas turbines in the US,” said Tristan Grimbert, the managing director of EDF Renewable Energy.
In addition to construction, Vestas also has an agreement to service the wind park in order to optimise its energy production.
