Vestas Wind Systems, which has plants in Windsor, Brighton and Pueblo, announced Thursday its largest wind-turbine order in three years: 400 megawatts for two Texas wind farms.

The wind farms are being built in south Texas by Duke Energy, the country's largest utility operator. The order is the largest globally since 2010 for Aarhus, Denmark-based Vestas.

"This order will keep our U.S. factories busy," Chris Brown, president of Vestas' U.S. and Canada sales division, said in an interview.

The Duke wind farms - producing the power to service 120,000 households - will use Vestas' new V110-2.0 turbines, which are being made in the U.S.

"This is a competitive, new product," Brown said. "We already have two years of work."
