PORTLAND, Ore. - Vestas announced it has received a new 350 MW order for a wind power plant in Oklahoma with parts to be manufactured at Vestas' Colorado facilities.

The order from Enel Green Power North America Inc. includes 75 V100-2.0 MW turbines and an additional 200 MW worth of 2 MW turbines.

Deliveries are expected to occur in mid-2014 with commissioning by the end of the year, Vestas said.

"We're thankful to work again with a major global company like Enel Green Power, which has a proven track record of building successful wind-energy projects in this country," said Chris Brown, president of Vestas' sales and service division in the U.S. and Canada.

To meet the demand, Vestas said it will hire "hundreds" of production workers in the first half of 2014 in Windsor and Brighton.
