The order marks the first draw on the 1,000 MW master supply agreement announced in December 2014. Delivery of the 75 V100-2.0 MW is scheduled for third quarter 2016.
“We are pleased to have placed our first 2016 U.S. wind turbine order with Vestas, building upon the strong relationship forged between our two companies over the past three years through more than 1,000 MW of joint business,” said Ryan Pfaff, Executive Vice President of EDF Renewable Energy. “We look forward to working with the Vestas team to make the Salt Fork Wind Project a success.”
“After closing the books last December on a master agreement that totaled almost 1,100 MW of capacity, we are very happy to kick off our next gigawatt-scale master agreement with EDF RE,” says Chris Brown, President of Vestas‘ sales and service division in the United States and Canada. “Our workhorse 2 MW platform combines a long, dependable track record with competitive economic performance. We’re pleased that EDF RE has selected it for this project.”
EDF Renewable Energy’s North American portfolio includes over 5.6 GW of developed projects and an installed capacity of 3.1 GW of wind, solar, biogas and biomass projects.
