China Longyuan Power orders Vestas wind turbines

Wind-turbine manufacturer Vestas has signed its first order in 2011 with China Longyuan Power for 48MW.

The order consists of 24 units of the V80-2.0MW turbine, which will be installed in Zhongmen, Putian County, in the coastal province of Fujian in south-eastern China.

This order is signed in continuation of the 36MW order that was signed between Longyuan and Vestas in 2010 and marks another important step in an evolving partnership between the two companies.

Longyuan and Vestas have been working together since 2005 and the joint efforts have resulted in more than 500MW of wind projects to date, consisting of more than 360 turbines covering both kW- and MW-class turbines.
