Denmark's Vestas, the world leader in wind energy, has received another order for a total of 50 MW of wind energy from Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, according to a statement from Vestas website.

The order is for the second phase of the same project in Heilongjiang province, however the owner of the project refused to be revealed currently, the statement said.

The contract includes supply and commissioning of the wind turbines, a VestasOnline® Business SCADA system and a two-year service and maintenance agreement. Delivery of the turbines is planned to take place during the third quarter of 2010, the statement said.

"We are proud to continue our partnership with this customer," said Jens Tommerup, President of Vestas China. "Furthermore, we are excited to continue to share our 30 years of industry experience with this important customer, providing them with our knowledge, expertise and support."

By the end of 2009, Vestas had an accumulated installed capacity of more than 2,000 MW in China, which makes Vestas one of the largest players in the Chinese wind energy market.

Vestas wind turbines deliver clean energy that supports the global fight against climate change, everyday. Wind power from Vestas turbines currently reduces carbon emissions by more than 40 million tons of CO2 every year, while at the same time building energy security and independence, the statement said.

Vestas is the world leader in wind technology, with a history of technological innovation and over 30 years of experience in developing, manufacturing, installing and maintaining wind turbines.

Vestas was a pioneer in the wind industry and started to manufacture wind turbines in 1979. In 1987, the company began to concentrate exclusively on wind energy.

Vestas was the first wind turbine company to enter the Chinese market when it installed the first turbines in Shandong and Hainan in 1986. Vestas has installed wind turbines in thirteen provinces in China and is among the biggest accumulated suppliers of wind turbines in China.

Vestas has five factories in Tianjin, a sales office in Beijing, a new factory in Hohhot, a procurement office in Shanghai, and is currently commissioning a new foundry in Xuzhou.

"By the end of 2009, Vestas had invested more than three billion RMB in China and 3,000 employees committed to providing wind energy solutions to Vestas' customers and partners in China. This is a concrete sign of our confidence in the Chinese wind energy sector," said Tommerup.

Vestas is working hard to build up a strong value chain in China that can fully support the construction of wind turbines from its factories in China. Every year, Vestas improves its Chinese sourcing capabilities; the aim is to have 100 per cent Chinese-made content, the statement said.

Vestas is known for its industry-leading product quality; all of its suppliers in China are part of a partnership design performance and high product quality.

China has surpassed the US to become the largest investors in renewable energy including solar and wind power production.
