The holiday season has been a prosperous one for the company as it announced agreements with developers in the US, Italy, Chile and Greece.

Vestas' biggest deal is from EDF Renewable Energy to supply 150MW to a project in the US. Delivery of 75 V100-2MW turbines will take place in the third quarter of 2016. It is the final order under a supply agreement signed in 2013.

The two companies have now signed a new 1GW master supply agreement to supply turbines to more projects "over the next few years".

Vestas has also received an order from US developer Sun Edison for the supply of 60MW of turbines for a number of projects across the country. The order includes equipment from Vestas' 2MW and 3MW platforms.

It means Sun Edison can access the recently extended production tax credit for the projects included in the deal.

The order is the first instalment of a master supply agreement for up to 600MW signed between Vestas and Sun Edison this week. In November, Sun Edison acquired the majority of developer First Wind.

Elsewhere, Vestas has secured an 88MW order in Chile from an undisclosed customer. It will supply 44 V110-2MW turbines to an unknown project in early 2016.

Terna Energy in Greece has handed Vestas a 73.2MW order for a site on Agios Georgios island in the Aegean Sea. Fourteen V112-3.3MW and nine V90-3MW turbines will be delivered in the third quarter of this year

Finally, Vestas has been handed a 41.7MW order from Italian firm Alisea SRL, a subsidiary of BayWa. The manufacturer will supply nine V126-3.3MW and six V110-2.0MW turbines to the Lacedonia project in Campania region, south-west Italy. Delivery is expected in the third quarter of 2015.
