Vestas has received an order for four projects in Inner Mongolia, comprising a total of 232 units of the V52-850 kW turbine. The order has been received from China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power Co. Ltd., which is part of the China Guangdong Nuclear Group. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines, a VestasOnline Business SCADA system and a two-year maintenance and service agreement.
Like other nuclear power developers, China Guangdong Nuclear has been diversifying its activities from nuclear power to alternative production technologies like wind power, according to Vestas.
Delivery of the turbines will begin this summer and is expected to be completed by the end of 2009. All turbines will be delivered from Vestas' production facilities in Tianjin, China.
