Vestas has won a contract from EDF Renewable Energy to supply turbines for a 194MW wind farm in the US.

The contract is part of the master supply agreement (MSA) announced in September 2013 for multiple US projects, the potential of which totals 1,174MW.

Under the contract, Vestas will supply its V100-2.0 MW turbines for projects located in the Texas panhandle.

The contract also includes a multi-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement for five years. The service option includes the VestasOnline surveillance system that remotely controls and monitors the turbines and predicts potential wear-and-tear issues.

Delivery of the turbines is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015, with commissioning slated to be completed in the same year.

"Vestas will supply its V100-2.0 MW turbines for projects located in the Texas panhandle."

Vestas' sales and service division in the United States and Canada president Chris Brown said, "Vestas values the close collaboration we have with EDF Renewable Energy. This order is a strong vote of confidence from one of the most experienced wind energy developers in the country, and we look forward to continuing to deliver projects under the Master Supply Agreement the two companies announced an expansion of in September 2013."

EDF Renewable Energy executive vice-president Ryan Pfaff said, "This order represents another important milestone under the Master Supply Agreement between EDF Renewable Energy and Vestas, and supports our near-term wind project construction program in the Texas Panhandle, resulting in new local jobs, taxes and other forms of economic development."
