EDP Renewables (EDPR) has signed a wind turbine procurement contract for the supply of up to 2,100 MW. EDPR has awarded the order to Vestas after a competitive process initiated one year ago.

The contract, a master supply agreement for up to 2,100 MW, consists of a firm order for supply, installation and commissioning of wind turbines with a total capacity of 1,500 MW to be delivered to North America, South America and Europe in 2011 and 2012, with the possibility to be extended by an additional 600 MW exercisable in 2010 and 2011.

The agreement also includes a two-year service and maintenance agreement extendable to five or 10 years, with a subsequent technical assistance agreement for an additional period.

According to the company, EDPR selected Vestas among other major wind turbine manufacturers around the world as the player that provided the best value fit to EDPR's short- and medium-term strategic business goals.
