EDF Renewable Energy Confirms Turbine Order with Vestas for 150 Megawatts

EDF Renewable Energy (EDF RE) has placed a firm order with Vestas Wind Systems A/S for 150 megawatt (MW) of wind turbine generators.

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EDF Renewable Energy (EDF RE) has placed a firm order with Vestas Wind Systems A/S for 150 megawatt (MW) of wind turbine generators. The order closes the books on the Master Supply Agreement (MSA) announced in September 2013 with orders totaling 1,094 MW. Delivery of the 75 V100-2.0 MW is scheduled for third quarter 2016.


"Over 1 gigawatt (GW) of new wind energy projects have materialized to date under the frame agreement EDF Renewable Energy and Vestas entered into in late 2013, significantly strengthening the partnership between our two companies in the process," said Ryan Pfaff, Executive Vice President of EDF Renewable Energy. "With the recent extension of the Production Tax Credit, we look forward to working with Vestas to bring additional, clean energy projects online in the US over the next few years."

In addition, the two companies have initiated a new master agreement defining terms for up to 1 GW of future capacity, which will be installed in coming years.

"In 2013, Vestas and EDF RE signed an ambitious master supply agreement laying out our partnership. Today's announcement will be the last under that productive umbrella agreement," says Chris Brown, President of Vestas' sales and service division in the United States and Canada. "But we're not done yet. EDF RE is one of the most successful renewable energy developers in the North American market, and this new agreement opens the door to our next gigawatt of continued collaboration in 2015 and beyond."

EDF Renewable Energy's U.S. portfolio spans 19 states with over 5 GW of developed projects and an installed capacity of 2.2 GW of wind, solar, biogas and biomass projects.
