Vestas has received an order for 33 units of the V90-3.0 MW wind turbine for installation in Canada. The order has been received from an affiliate of SUEZ Renewable Energy NA, the renewable energy division of Houston-based SUEZ Energy North America Inc.

"This order signifies another major step forward for SUEZ in its wind development assets in Canada," says Paul Cavicchi, president and CEO of SUEZ Renewable Energy NA. "We are pleased to be working with a company that has amassed such an excellent track record in terms of equipment quality and customer service as Vestas."

The order comprises supply and commissioning of the wind turbines and a three-year service and maintenance agreement. Vestas will start delivery of the 33 turbines mid-2009 and expects to complete commissioning in the second half of 2009.
