Under the contract, Vestas will supply and commission 36 Vestas V110 2MW turbines at the project located in Marshall County.

The deal also includes a 20-year service agreement. Vestas expects to install and commission the turbines in the first half of 2016.

RPM Access vice president for development Felix Friedman said: "The Vestas V110-2.0 MW wind turbine generators on 95 meter towers provide RPMA an optimal match to the wind conditions at the northeast Kansas site."

Vestas president of sales and service in the US and Canada Chris Brown said: "In addition to increasing the amount of clean and affordable energy available to the people of Kansas and Missouri, the 20-year service agreement ensures RPM Access will receive unparalleled service and optimal energy production from their turbines and that these communities will benefit from a steady source of quality jobs."

Vestas has recently won a contract from BHE Renewables to provide 200 V110-2MW turbines for the Grande Prairie wind farm in Holt County, Nebraska.

The company claims that the contract will be its largest single-phase project ever in the US in terms of megawatts.

Vestas, which sold its first wind turbines in the US in 1980, installed 12,602MW of capacity in the country by the end of 2014. Last year, the company secured 2.2GW of orders for delivery in the US.
