June 30 (Bloomberg) -- Vestas Wind Systems A/S, the world’s biggest wind-turbine maker, won orders totaling 450 megawatts from Electricite de France SA’s renewable unit to supply two U.S. wind farms.

Vestas will deliver 225 machines to EDF Renewable Energy’s Roosevelt project in New Mexico and its Slate Creek farm in Kansas, according to a statement on the website of the Aarhus, Denmark-based manufacturer.

Both wind farms are scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015, Vestas said. Its factories in Colorado will be involved in manufacturing key components, including the nacelles, blades and towers, it said.
