Vestas releases to the market three new product variants of the 3 MW platform, the V112-3.3 MW, the V117-3.3 MW and the V126-3.3 MW and announces the largest onshore project in Denmark will use the new 3 MW machines.

The turbines are developed from the same proven and popular technology of the V112-3.0 MW, enabling customers to benefit from increased annual energy production across low, medium and high wind sites, higher reliability as well as more effective service and spare part operations.
