13 January 2010

Vestas has received an order for delivery of 50 V100-1.8 MW and 25 V90-2.0 MW wind turbines for Bulgaria and Romania. The order has been placed by Global Wind Power, and the contract includes delivery, installation and commissioning of the turbines, a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution as well as a 5 year-service agreement.

Installation of the turbines will start in 2010 and the projects are expected to be commissioned during 2010.

“We are very satisfied with this new contract with Global Wind Power and we appreciate the ongoing cooperation with this long-term business partner, who has installed more than 400 MW of Vestas technology. We are pleased about their confidence in Vestas’ business case certainty,“ says Hans Jørn Rieks, President of Vestas Central Europe.

Global Wind Power has implemented four projects in Bulgaria between 2008 and 2009, with a total capacity of 52 MW - all of which use Vestas turbines.

“We have a very good working experience with Vestas all over Europe, and so far, we have only been using Vestas turbines for our projects. The order is a direct result of our newly launched Business Plan 2009-2012. We are confident that these projects will also be a big success and we look forward to realising the order together with our trustworthy business partner,” Henrik Amby Jensen, CEO of Global Wind Power declares.
