Vestas to supply another 100MW of wind turbines to China’s Hanas

Danish wind power giant Vestas receives more orders from Chinese gas supplier Hanas New Energy totalling 100MW

With the latest two orders, Hanas’ portfolio of Vestas wind turbines amounts to 350MW

Danish wind energy firm Vestas has received two orders for 100MW of wind turbines from Ningxia-based Hanas New Energy in China. The orders comprise of 50 units of Vestas' V100-2.0MW turbine model, which with its large rotor diameter, is designed and optimised for low wind sites. The turbines will be installed in China's Yanchi wind farm.

Vestas has become the sole supplier to Hanas. In August this year, Hanas ordered 50MW turbines from Vestas, which brought the Chinese company's portfolio of Vestas wind systems to 250MW. With the latest two orders, Hanas' portfolio of Vestas turbines stands at 350MW. Delivery of the first Vestas wind turbine is expected to start mid-2014.

Jens Tommerup, president of Vestas Asia Pacific & China, said: "With high demands for performance and with the aspiration of building a strong and healthy business, Hanas' priorities resemble those of Vestas for the Chinese market, where we are seeking to build partnerships that contribute to a healthy business for Vestas."

Hanas said it intends to build up a total wind energy capacity of one GW in the windy autonomous region of Ningxia, North Western China, by 2015.

Vestas installed China's first wind turbines in the Shandong province in 1986. As of 30 June 2013, Vestas has installed more than 4,000MW of clean energy across 14 provinces in the BRIC country. This makes Vestas one of the biggest accumulated suppliers of wind power plants in China.
