As per the agreed terms, Vestas will manufacture and supply its first V110-2.0 MW wind turbines that will be installed at the American wind projects.

These wind power projects are part of the agreement to deliver 1,500MW to wind power plants in North America, South America and Europe, the company said.

Scope of the contract includes five-year service agreements featuring the Active Output Management 5000 offering, along with VestasOnline surveillance system.

The delivery of the wind turbines is slated for completion in 2014 and they will become operational in 2015.

Commenting on the deal, Vestas United States and Canada Sales and Service president Chris Brown said Vestas has successfully worked with EDPR for the past eight years to deliver many wind-power projects around the world.

"We look forward to supplying EDPR our new V110-2.0 MW wind turbine, which is a variant of the V100-1.8 MW that can provide over 13 per cent higher annual energy production compared with its predecessor. Our 2-MW platform has a long track record of success and reliability.

"The V110-2.0 MW will provide clean, reliable and low cost electricity for decades," added Brown.
