The Danish wind turbine giant Vestas has secured its largest deal in four years after signing off on a 225-turbine deal with EDF Renewable Energy in the US.

The deal, which will include projects in Kansas and New Mexico, is part of an agreement that the two companies made back in September 2013 that will now be expanded.

“This is quite the milestone,” Lars Villardsen, the deputy head of investor relations in Vestas, said according to Politiken newspaper. “The deal will bring lots of activity, so it’s very important to us.”

The projects are scheduled to be launched at the beginning of 2015, and the 225 turbines are expected to be up and running by the end of that same year.

It’s the second time that EDF Renewable Energy has returned to Vestas for more business since the initial link between the two was established last year.
