Vestas Wind Systems A/S (Randers, Denmark) reported on April 26 that it had won the largest-ever single order in its history, for delivery of up to 2,100 MW of wind turbines (pictured are Vestas’ V80 2-MW turbines at Horn’s Reef, off the coast of Denmark). Blades for the order will be molded at Vestas’ new facility in Windsor, Colo. Placed by EDP Renováveis (Lisbon, Portugal), the world’s third-largest wind power company, the order was awarded to Vestas after a competitive process launched more than one year ago. Wind turbines with a total capacity of 1,500 MW will be delivered to North America, South America and Europe in 2011 and 2012, with an additional 600 MW possible. The deal includes a two-year service/maintenance agreement that could extend to 5 or 10 years.
