With the expiry of the production tax credit (PTC) in the US, developers are increasingly opting for larger onshore wind turbines in the 4MW-class, even at sites that are not land constrained in less densely populated states such as Texas that previously installed smaller machines on a massive scale.

The order includes supply and delivery of the machines with an operation range of 4.8MW.

The order comes with a 5-year service agreement.
