Vestas sees out 2011 with orders from seven countries

Vestas, the world leader in wind energy, has received two orders from key account EDF Energies Nouvelles for delivery of 19 V90-2.0 MW wind turbines for the Gargano wind farm in Apulia, Italy, and for 12 V90-2.0 MW turbines for the Eckolstädt wind farm, in Thüringen, Germany, for a total capacity of 62 MW.

Both orders have been placed by EDF Energies Nouvelles, a leader in renewable energy, as part of the binding share of wallet agreement signed in June 2011 with Vestas. Through the agreement for the years 2012-2014, EDF Energies Nouvelles and its US subsidiary, committed to purchase Vestas wind turbines for a minimum of 50 per cent of all its future onshore wind installations in Europe and for a minimum of 30 per cent in the United States.
