Acciona Windpower, an Acciona group subsidiary that manufactures and supplies wind turbines, and EDP Renovaveis, an EDP group company that carries out wind power development projects through its subsidiary NEO, have signed a framework agreement for the supply of wind turbines with a total capacity of 382.5 MW over the next three years.

The wind parks to which the turbines will be assigned could be either - at the discretion of EDP Renovaveis - in Europe or North America.

Acciona Windpower will supply 1.5 MW wind turbines and, depending on the needs of EDP Renovaveis, 3 MW machines in 2009-2011. Under the conditions of the contract, the supply agreement could be extended by a further 400 MW in the same period.

In addition to supply, the contract includes installation, start up and operation, and maintenance of the wind turbines.
