PORTLAND, Ore. - Vestas announced its Colorado factories will be producing V100-2.0 MW wind turbines to fill a 194 MW order for projects in the Texas panhandle placed by San Diego-based EDF Renewable Energy.

Vestas' production facilities in Windsor, Brighton and Pueblo will fill the order for the turbines, with deliveries and commissioning expected to be complete in Q4 2015.

The order is part of a Master Supply Agreement reached with EDF in September 2013.

"Vestas values the close collaboration we have with EDF Renewable Energy," said Chris Brown, president of Vestas' sales and service division in the U.S. and Canada. "Wind energy is a job-creator in this country, and this order will help keep our Colorado factories busy."

EDF's U.S. portfolio spans 16 states with more than 4,000 MW of developed projects and an installed capacity of 1,863 MW of wind, solar, biogas and biomass projects.

Vestas said it is adding more workers at its Windsor and Brighton facilities to help meet the demand for wind energy.
