Denmark's Vestas Wind Systems, the world's largest wind turbine manufacturer, has received an order for 29 V90-1.8 MW wind turbines for two projects in Spain. The turnkey order was placed by Energias Alternativas de Castilla La Mancha, a Spanish wind farm developer, and includes Vestas online remote monitoring systems. Delivery of the turbines is scheduled for summer 2007, and the wind power plants will be completed by the end of 2007.
Ebbe Funk, president of Vestas Mediterranean West comments: "The fact that Energias Alternativas de Castilla La Mancha has chosen Vestas as supplier for their projects is a further strengthening of our presence in Castilla La Mancha. This order confirms our positive expectations for the V90 turbine in Spain."
The Castilla La Mancha region is the second largest region in Spain in terms of installed wind power. By the end of 2005, Vestas had installed 76 MW in this region. The news was reported by financial daily newspaper Børsen and on the Vestas website.
Vestas Wind Systems employs 10,600 people and has production facilities in Denmark, Germany, India, Italy, UK, Spain, Sweden, Norway and Australia. In 2005, Vestas Wind Systems generated revenues of DKK 26.7 bn (USD 4.3 bn), and sold wind turbines with a total power of 3,185 MW worldwide.
