Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems has gained an order for 33 V90-2.0 MW wind turbines for four wind power projects in France. The order which was placed by Eole RES, a French subsidiary of Renewable Energy Systems, comprises supply and commissioning of the turbines as well as Vestas Online Monitoring System.
Ebbe Funk, president of Vestas Mediterranean, comments: "This type of wind turbine has turned out to be highly suitable for local wind conditions and price terms. The new payment terms approved by the French government, and the new national targets to install 13,500 MW capacity by 2010, which the French government announced in July, both form a good basis for strong growth on the French market."
Delivery of the turbines will begin in spring 2007, and commissioning of the wind power plants is scheduled for autumn 2007. The news was reported by financial daily newspaper Børsen and on 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.
