Vestas has received four orders from a major Chinese independent power producer to supply 166 wind turbines with a total installed capacity of 198MW.

Neither the contract value nor the name of the customer has been disclosed.

The orders consist of 116 units of V52-850kW wind turbines and 50 units of V90-1.8/2.0MW wind turbines for the Guangdong and Shandong provinces, respectively.

The orders include wind turbine delivery, transportation, installation and commissioning, a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution as well as a five-year service and maintenance agreement.

Delivery of the turbines is scheduled to start during the second and third quarters of 2010.
