June 21, 2010 — Vestas, the world leader in wind energy, has received an order from China Datang Renewable Power Co. Ltd. for 25 units of the versatile and highly productive V80-2.0 MW turbine. The turbines are designated for the Alatan wind farm near Tongliao in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and delivery is expected in the third quarter of 2010.
“Datang and Vestas enjoy a close partnership. Both companies are in renewable energy for the long term and we are very much aligned with regards to establishing a healthy and robust wind energy sector in China,” said Jens Tommerup, President of Vestas China. “Like Datang, Vestas is in this for the long term and I would like to thank Datang for their commitment to renewable energy and the continuous confidence they show in our products and services. I am confident that we’ll secure Datang a good return on their investment.”
The sale includes transportation, installation and commissioning as well as a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution. This solution includes an extensive range of monitoring and control functions allowing the wind farm to be controlled in much the same way as a conventional power plant. In this way, customers have full control of power production as well as full overview of the operational status of each individual wind turbine, which is very important in relation to servicing of the turbines and sophisticated management of large scale wind power plants.
