Vestas will deliver and install 24 pieces of its V90-3.0 MW turbines and eight V80-2.0 MW machines. In addition, the company expects to reach a service agreement.
The order includes an option for an additional 8 MW, namely, two V90-3.0 MW and one V80-2.0 MW units.
The contract is part of a framework agreement between EDF EN, the renewable energy unit of French utility EDF (EPA:EDF), and Vestas from 2011.
As of March 31, 2014, Vestas has delivered over 1,800 MW of turbines to the French market. Last year it was the leading wind turbine supplier in the country.
