July 1 (SeeNews) - Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) on Tuesday announced three US wind turbine supply contracts for a total of 537 MW, two of which are coming from SunEdison Inc (NYSE:SUNE).

So far this year, the company has secured 4,217 MW of turbine orders.

US renewables major SunEdison has selected Vestas’ V112-3.3 MW turbine for the Bingham wind project in Somerset County, Maine. It has ordered 47 machines, which, together with components ordered from Vestas previously, will bring the wind park’s total capacity to 185 MW.

The other deal with SunEdison is for 83 pieces of the V117-3.3 MW turbine, totalling 274 MW, to be erected at the site of an unnamed 300-MW project in Texas. Vestas has supplied equipment for this scheme previously as well.

Both of SunEdison’s new orders are call-offs from prior master supply agreements between the two parties. The two new contracts include 10-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement. The turbines will be installed and commissioned by Vestas next year.

Meanwhile, the Danish wind turbine maker has also received a 108-MW supply-only order from an unnamed customer for a project in the US. Vestas will ship 54 pieces of its V110-2.0 MW turbine to the site in the third quarter of 2016. Commissioning of the particular project is scheduled for the final quarter of 2016.
