Wind turbine manufacturer Vestas gets major order

PUEBLO, Colo. - Wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems has announced its biggest order in three years.

The company has a contract for a Texas wind energy project that will mean more work for Vestas' Colorado plants, including its wind tower plant south of Pueblo.

Vestas said Duke Energy Renewables has placed an order for two projects in southern Texas.

Vestas cut jobs last year. In the last decade, the company has spent more than $1 billion to build four plants in Colorado.
