EDF locks up turbines for construction of more than 3,000 MW of US wind capacity

EDF Group subsidiary EDF Renewable Energy has signed turbine supply agreements for the construction of more than 3,000 MW of planned wind projects, the company said in a Jan. 30 news release.

The deals with turbine manufacturers Vestas Wind Systems A/S, General Electric Co. and Siemens Corp. put EDF in line to capitalize on the requirements of the federal production tax credit during the 2017 to 2020 period, the company said.

"The North American market is very strong and our development plan for 2017-2020 expects to capitalize on the positive momentum to support jobs in the wind sector and incremental revenues to farmers that host our projects and provide cost-competitive energy to consumers and businesses," said Tristan Grimbert, president and CEO for EDF EN North America.

The company said it also expects to qualify 500 MW of renewable capacity in its strategic repowering process for the production tax credit.
