June 27 (Bloomberg) -- Vestas Wind Systems A/S, the world’s biggest wind turbine maker, won orders in the U.S. and France for turbines with 212 megawatts of capacity.

Electricite de France SA’s renewables unit agreed to buy 88 megawatts of equipment, Aarhus, Denmark-based Vestas said today in a statement on its website. The contract comprises 24 of its V90 3-megawatt turbines and eight V80 2-megawatt devices, and includes an option for an extra two V90s and an additional V80.

The order is part of a wider framework agreement that the two companies announced in June 2011, in which EDF Energies Nouvelles agreed to ensure half of all its European onshore wind installations from 2012 through 2014 would be Vestas machines. The deal also called for at least 30 percent of the company’s wind turbines in U.S. projects to be from Vestas. Vestas said at the time it could lead to as much as 2,000 megawatts of sales.

The manufacturer said a service contract for today’s deal will be reached at a later date. It didn’t provide a timeline or location for the project “at the customer’s request.”

Vestas also will provide all the turbines for a 150-megawatt wind farm in North Dakota. The company said today it will provide 124 megawatts of equipment for Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc.’s Border Winds Project. That follows a 26-megawatt order for the wind farm announced in September.
