Vestas - Order for 100 MW in China

Vestas has received an order for the delivery of 116 V52-850 kW wind turbines for China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power Co. Ltd., bringing the total capacity of V52 wind turbines sold to the company to 500 MW.

The agreement includes supply of the turbines, a VestasOnlineTM Business SCADA solution and a two-year maintenance and service agreement.

China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power Co. Ltd. is one of the key wind power developers in China and a key partner of Vestas China.

”It is once again a pleasure to do business with China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power,” said Vestas China Managing Director Lars Andersen. “This latest sale - the eighth order from China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power in the last 12 months - means that Vestas is now one of the largest single suppliers of wind turbines to the company.”

Delivery of the turbines is planned for the third quarter of 2009.

“With the latest sale, Vestas will have supplied 500 MW of wind energy capacity to China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power, demonstrating the trust and excellent working relationship between our two companies,” added Lars Andersen “This sale is proof of both the reliability of our product and the overall business case certainty of our wind energy solutions. Vestas is strongly committed to the Chinese market and to working with our Chinese partners to support the overall development of China's wind energy sector.”

Vestas was the first wind turbine company to enter the Chinese market when it installed the first turbines in Shandong and Hainan provinces in 1986. As per 30 June 2008, Vestas has installed more that 1,000 wind turbines in thirteen provinces in China and is among the biggest accumulated supplier of wind turbines in the country. With the opening of a new factory complex in Inner Mongolia and a new foundry in Jiangsu in 2009, Vestas will be operating five factory complexes in three different provinces. In Tianjin, Vestas runs the largest wind power-manufacturing complex in China producing generators, blades, nacelles, hubs and control systems. Vestas currently employs more than 1,800 people in China engaged throughout the value chain and providing wind energy solutions to Vestas' customers and partners in China.

The above order does not affect the Vestas Group's expectations for 2008 and 2009, cf. Company announcement No. 46/2008 of 6 November 2008.
