Danish wind giant Vestas to deliver 50MW of turbines to China energy supplier

Turbine deal for Vestas with Chinese gas firm Hanas New Energy continues business as its only wind power supplier

Chinese firm Hanas New Energy plans to develop 1GW of wind energy

Danish firm Vestas is to supply 50MW of wind turbines to a Chinese gas supplier. The Danish wind power developer, based in Denmark, will deliver the turbines to Chinese firm Hanas New Energy. The supply deal continues the companies’ work together, with Vestas remaining the Chinese firm’s only supplier to its wind business.

The Danish firm will supply 25 units of its V90 wind turbine model. The turbines will provide 2MW of wind energy each and will be installed in Yanchi wind park in China’s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.

Vestas also supplied 50MW of its V90 turbines to a Chinese wind farm in the BRIC country’s Fujian province last year.

The Chinese company has to date ordered a total capacity of 250MW from Vestas. 150MW of these turbines are already in operation, while 50MW are currently under construction. Hanas New Energy is planning on developing a total of 1GW of wind energy in the future.

With this latest order, in addition to the ongoing business relationship between Vestas and Hanas New Energy, the Danish wind firm remains the only supplier to the Chinese company’s wind business. Vestas was also the Chinese gas supplier’s first choice when the firm entered the wind business in 2010, according to Hanas New Energy.

Jens Tommerup, president of Vestas Asia Pacific & China, said about Hanas New Energy: “Vestas was chosen as their partner three years back because we possessed some unique capabilities that could help maximise the value of their first venture into the wind business. We are proud to have been chosen again.”

According to the agreement, apart from supplying and delivering 50MW of wind turbines, the Danish firm will also provide towers for Hanas New Energy.

Delivery of the first wind turbine is expected to start in September this year.
