Vestas Wind, one of the world’s leading wind developers, received four separate orders amounting to 447 MW in the space of less than a week.

Between the 31st of March and the 4th of April, Vestas announced four separate orders for a total of 447 MW in wind turbines, set for four separate countries and continents.

Vestas received a 48 MW order for 24 units of its V110-2.0 MW turbine from long-term customer Datang Renewables, for the Gaoqiao wind park in the Huludao city of northeastern China’s Liaoning Province. The order also includes a two-year Active Output Management 4000 service contract.

“We are very pleased to work with our long-term Chinese customer, Datang Renewables, on this project, and it confirms that our China strategy is indeed on track,” said Chris Beaufait, President of Vestas Asia Pacific and China. “The order is a testament to the long-term performance of Vestas’ products as well as our ability to evolve with our customers and continuously offer the best possible solutions while lowering the cost of energy.”

On the same day, Vestas also announced it had received a small order for 27 MW of its V100-1.8 MW turbines for the Ausines wind farm in Burgos, in northern Spain. The order will also come with a five-year service agreement.

Also announced on the 31st of March was a 200 MW order for 100 of Vestas’ V110-2.0 MW turbines for an undisclosed customer and project located in the USA.

To top it all off, four days later, Vestas announced that it would also be providing 172 MW in 86 of its V110-2.0 MW turbines to the state of Bahía in northeastern Brazil. Vestas will supply and install the turbines, with completion expected for the fourth quarter of 2017.

“Today’s orders cover six different sites across Bahía and is a great example of how well-suited the V110-2.0 MW is for Brazil, its wind conditions and geographical span,” said Marco Graziano, President of Vestas Mediterranean. “Brazil was Vestas’ fifth largest market for order intake in 2015, and we have a strategic ambition to grow further there. With our increased presence, order intake and BNDES-accreditation, we are on the right track.”
