Suzlon Wind Energy Corp., a subsidiary of Suzlon Energy Ltd. of India, has signed a repeat order with Energias de Portugal subsidiary Horizon Wind Energy for 200 MW of wind turbine capacity.

The parties' original contract, which calls for delivery of 400 MW of turbine capacity in 2008 and 2009, is expanded with this new agreement to include another 200 MW in 2009. The capacity will be supplied in Suzlon's S88 2.1 MW wind turbine and will be delivered to various ready-to-build sites across the U.S. The turbine agreement includes the supply of 95 units of the S88 in 2008 and 190 units of the S88 in 2009, the companies say. Suzlon has contracted for operations, maintenance and service of the wind turbines for two years with an option for five years.
