New Chinese customer chooses Vestas for first wind energy project

The wind farm is the new customer’s first wind energy project, underlining Vestas’ role as a trusted partner in the world’s biggest wind power market and its position as the leading foreign OEM in China. The order includes 35 V110-2.0 MW wind turbines delivered in 2.2 MW Power Optimised Mode for a project in Dezhou city of eastern China’s Shandong Province.

The wind park will leverage Vestas’ high tower solutions with a hub height of 137 meters, levelling the record high in the Chinese market set by Vestas in August with a project in the same province. Vestas’ high tower solutions continue to open up new sites and projects in low and ultra-low wind in China.

“With another high tower project, Vestas’ technical solutions continue to deliver a strong business case in the very competitive Chinese market and strengthen our capability to build trust with new customers”, said Kebao Yang, Vestas Group Senior Vice President and President of Vestas China.

The project includes a two-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service contract. Delivery and commissioning are expected to begin in the first half of 2018.

This new order takes Vestas’ announced order intake in China to more than 700 MW in 2017.
