The collective generation capacity is 1,363 megawatts, or almost equal to Japan's total wind power generation capacity of 1,495 megawatts from 1,314 turbines, the company said in a press release.

The combined orders are worth around 160 billion Japanese yen (US$1.3 billion; .96 billion), Dow Jones Newswires reported, citing a person familiar with the industry. Mitsubishi Heavy declined to release the order's value.

Deliveries of the turbines will begin this year and be finished in 2009, Mitsubishi Heavy said.

The company has delivered 1,962 wind turbines to the U.S. through the end of May, and already had in hand orders for 612 turbines for the U.S. before receiving the most recent orders.
