Vestas to supply wind power turbines for new 88 MW project in France

Vestas to supply wind power turbines for new 88 MW project in FranceVestas Wind Systems A/S has contracted with EDF Energies Nouvelles to supply the company with 24 V90 model 2 megawatt wind turbines and eight V80 model 2 MW wind turbines, according to a company statement. The agreement also includes an option for EDF Energies to order two additional V90 wind turbines and one additional V80 wind turbines.

The turbines will be used for a 88 MW project in France, located on a currently unnamed wind farm. Vestas has agreed to not only supply the turbines but install and commission them.

This order is part of a framework established between Vestas and EDF Energies, which was announced in 2011. As of March 2014, Vestas was the leading wind turbine manufacturer in France in 2013, and has delivered more than 1,800 MW of energy-production to France.

"Vestas and EDF EN are driven by the same mission – to further develop wind power around the globe and to make it an even more competitive source of energy," Vestas' Chief Sale Officer Juan Araluce said.

The contract to service the turbines during their use will be determined and signed at a later date, according to Vestas.
