Renewable energy developer Horizon Wind Energy, owned by Portuguese utility Energias de Portugal S.A., has signed a contract for 400 MW of wind turbine capacity with Suzlon Wind Energy Corp., the U.S.-based subsidiary of Suzlon Energy A/S of Denmark. According to the companies, the contract calls for delivery of 200 MW of turbine capacity in 2008 and another 200 MW of capacity in 2009.

Suzlon's S88-2.1 MW wind turbine is the featured machine of the agreement and will be delivered to various ready-to-build sites in Horizon's project pipeline. The turbine agreement includes the supply of 95 units of the S88-2.1 MW in 2008 and 95 units in 2009.

The companies add that Suzlon is contracted for operations, maintenance and service of the wind turbines for two years and an option for five years, and will do so by expanding its service territory with new facilities to meet demand.
