Vestas, the Denmark-based wind turbine-maker, has received two orders in China to supply 29 turbines for two wind farms in China, totaling 100MW in generating capacity.
The first order was placed by China Three Gorge Renewables (CTG Renewables), a new customer for Vestas. The second order was placed by an undisclosed customer for a wind farm with 50MW of capacity.
For CTG Renewables, Vestas has agreed to supply 15 of its V155-3.3 MW turbines with 142m towers, which will be installed at the 50 MW Juye I project. The wind farm will be located in Heze, Shandong province in China.
