Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has received an order from China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power Company for the delivery of 116 of its 850kW V52 wind turbines, bringing the total capacity of V52 wind turbines sold to the company to 500MW.

According to the company, the agreement includes supply of the turbines, a VestasOnline Business supervisory control and data acquisition service and a two-year maintenance and service agreement.

Lars Andersen, Vestas China managing director, said: “This latest sale, the eighth order from China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power in the last 12 months, means that Vestas is one of the largest single suppliers of wind turbines to the company.”

Vestas claims that it is the first wind turbine company to enter the Chinese market when it installed the first turbines in Shandong and Hainan provinces in 1986. 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 wind power-manufacturing complex in China producing generators, blades, nacelles, hubs and control systems.
