Vestas has received an order from EDF Energies Nouvelles to supply an 88 MW wind farm in France, with an option for an additional 8 MW.

The order, which includes 24 V90-3.0 MW and eight V80-2.0 MW turbines, is part of a previous framework agreement signed between EDF EN and Vestas. The deal includes an option for an additional two V90-3.0 MW and one V80-2.0 MW turbines. Vestas expects to enter a service agreement at a later date.

“This order further strengthens Vestas’ market position in France and reaffirms the competitiveness of our technology and our team," says Juan Araluce, chief sales officer at Vestas. “Vestas and EDF EN are driven by the same mission - to further develop wind power around the globe and to make it an even more competitive source of energy.”
