Vestas has received two U.S.-based orders totaling 450 MW from EDF Renewable Energy. The orders are part of a 1.2 GW master supply agreement (MSA) inked last September. To date, the turbine maker has secured 944 MW.

According to Vestas, EDF placed orders for 75 V110-2.0 MW turbines for the 150 MW Slate Creek Wind Project, located in Kansas, and 150 V100-2.0 MW turbines for the 300 MW Roosevelt Wind Project, located in New Mexico.

Delivery of the 150 MW Slate Creek project is expected to take place in the third quarter of 2015, with commissioning expected by the end of 2015. Turbine delivery at the Roosevelt project is expected to take place in the second quarter of 2015, with commissioning expected in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Vestas’ factories in Colorado are expected to be involved in manufacturing the nacelles, blades and towers for both projects.
