As part of a previously announced master supply agreement, Vestas will manufacture and supply its first V110-2.0 MW wind turbines for a combined 400 MW to EDP Renewables (EDPR) for projects in the U.S.

These projects are part of the master supply agreement to deliver 1,500 MW to wind power plants in North America, South America and Europe announced April 26, 2010. The V110-2.0 MW turbines are expected to be delivered and commissioned in 2014 and 2015. The new projects’ names and specific locations are not available for disclosure at this time.

“Vestas has successfully worked with EDPR for the past eight years to deliver many wind power projects around the world,” comments Chris Brown, president of Vestas’ sales and service division in the U.S. and Canada. “We look forward to supplying EDPR our new V110-2.0 MW wind turbine, which is a variant of the V100-1.8 MW that can provide over 13 percent higher annual energy production compared with its predecessor.”

Vestas’ factories in Colorado will manufacture the blades, towers and nacelles for these projects.

The projects include five-year service agreements featuring the Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 offering. The company says this service option also includes the VestasOnline surveillance system, which remotely controls and monitors the turbines and predicts potential wear-and-tear issues.
