Danish wind turbine giant Vestas has landed yet another huge deal with a US customer.

The company will deliver 83 turbines capable of generating a 166 megawatt output for a wind farm project in Minnesota, which will start providing the state with sustainable energy in the fourth quarter of 2015, Jyllands-Posten reports.

The order is part of a larger framework agreement that will supply RES Americas with 610 megawatts of power. Following this latest order, Vestas is now only 146 megawatts away from fulfilling that agreement in full.

Vestas has signed off on framework agreements for a total of 3,500 megawatts in the US market and has taken orders totalling 2,000 megawatts.

If Vestas maintains its course, contracts for the remaining megawatts of the framework agreements may soon be materialised.
