PORTLAND, Ore. - Vestas has announced its third order for new wind turbines in the U.S. within the last week, with parts to again be produced at its Colorado manufacturing facilities.

Vestas said it received a 150 MW order from Boston-based First Wind and will deliver 75 V110-2.0 MW turbines to a wind-energy project near Amarillo, Tex. Deliveries are expected to occur in early 2015 with commissioning in mid-2015.
