Suzlon Wind Energy Corp., the U.S.-based subsidiary of Suzlon Energy A/S of Denmark, has signed a contract to supply a total of 300 units of the S88-2.1 MW turbine, which is equivalent to 630 MW of capacity, with Edison Mission Group (EMG) of Irvine, Calif.

The two-phase contract calls for delivery of 315 MW of turbine capacity in 2008 and another 315 MW of capacity in 2009. Combined with previous purchases, this order brings EMG's total committed Suzlon turbine capacity to over 1,000 MW - the most of any of its customers, Suzlon adds.

"Suzlon has quickly become a major player in the U.S. market and it is largely due to the renewed commitment we've received from EMG since 2003," says Andre Horbach, chief executive officer of Suzlon Group. "We are very proud of the relationship we have built with EMG."

The agreement includes a five-year contract for service and warranty in 2008. Suzlon states that the turbines will be sited at various U.S. wind farm locations, which are yet to be announced.
