Vestas has been awarded two contracts totalling 450MW for wind power projects in the US under a master supply agreement (MSA) with EDF Renewable Energy.
Under the first contract, Vestas will supply 75 V110-2.0MW turbines for the 150MW Slate Creek Wind Project in Kansas, US.
Vestas will also provide 150 V100-2.0MW turbines for the 300MW Roosevelt Wind Project in New Mexico, under the second contract.
"Slate Creek will be our first V110-2.0 MW project with EDF RE, and Roosevelt will be the largest wind park in New Mexico," Vestas US and Canada sales and service division president Chris Brown said.
The two projects comprise three-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5,000 service agreements aimed to ensure the turbines are operational when the wind is blowing.
EDF Renewable Energy executive vice-president Ryan Pfaff said EDF Renewable Energy is working with Vestas to bring 450MW of wind facilities in the Southwest Power Pool online by the end of 2015.
"Both the 300MW Roosevelt and 150MW Slate Creek wind projects have long-term power purchase agreements in place with creditworthy counterparties, and we look forward to creating new American jobs in New Mexico, Kansas and elsewhere through the construction and long-term operation of the projects," Pfaff said
Scheduled be commissioned in the fourth quarter of 2015, the Roosevelt and Slate Creek projects’ delivery are expected to take place in the second quarter of 2015 and third quarter of 2015 respectively.
