Denmark's Vestas Wind Systems, the world's largest wind turbine manufacturer, has landed an order for 31 V82 wind turbines for the Spanish market. The order which also included Vestas remote monitoring system, was placed by Parque Eólico de Alentisque, a Spanish wind turbine developer. Delivery of the turbines will begin in November 2006, and the wind power plant is scheduled for completion in 2007.
The wind turbines will be located in the Castilla y León region of Spain where Vestas has two factories. Ebbe Funk, president of Vestas Mediterranean, says: "In 2003, Vestas built a control system factory in Soria, and this year we have completed construction of our V90 nacelle production unit in Villadangos. The fact that Parque Eólico de Alentisque has chosen Vestas as supplier of their project is a further strengthening of our presence in Castilla y León." 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.
