This agreement is Vestas' seventh with SunEdison and is part of a 600MW master supply agreement signed between the two companies in December 2014.

The manufacturer has also won a 108MW deal from an undisclosed customer to supply 54 V110-2MW turbines to a project in the US. Delivery is expected to take place in 2016 and the agreement includes five years of servicing.
