Vestas has received a 220 MW order from EDF Renewable Energy for two Texas wind projects. The order is a call off of the master supply agreement (MSA) announced in September for multiple U.S. projects, the potential of which has been increased from 750 MW to 1,174 MW. So far, Vestas says it has secured 300 MW under this MSA.

Both projects, Hereford 1 and Longhorn North, are located in the Texas Panhandle. The Hereford 1 project will feature 50 V100-2.0 MW turbines, while the 200 MW Longhorn North project will include 100 units of the same turbine. Deliveries and commissioning for both projects are expected to occur in the second half of 2014. The two projects will also feature a multi-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement for at least three years.

“Vestas looks forward to working with EDF Renewable Energy to build more clean energy projects in Texas. It’s one of the strongest wind power markets in the world, and where we have already supplied turbines to nine major wind power plants in the state,” says Vestas’ Chris Brown. “This order also will help to create more American jobs at our blade, tower and nacelle factories in Colorado.”

In 2013, Vestas says it has announced over 1.4 GW of orders in the U.S. and Canada among four turbine types.
