Vestas announced Friday an 80-megawatt deal with EDF that ultimately could lead to 750 megawatts worth of projects. Vestas has factories in Windsor, Brighton and Pueblo.
“This is great news for our Colorado factories, which currently employ more than 1,200 people combined,” a Vestas spokesman said in an email.
Vestas expects to deliver and commission the projects, which will use the V100-2.0 megawatt turbine, in 2014 and 2015. Vestas did not disclose the wind project locations.
The deal follows another supply agreement announced by Vestas in August to manufacture 1,500 megawatts of turbines for EDP Renovaveis in 2014 and 2015.
