Vestas receives order for 61 wind turbines for Spain

Vestas has received an order for a total of 128 MW for four projects in Spain. The contract includes 25 units of the V90-2.0 MW turbine, 19 units of the V90-1.8 MW turbine, 10 units of the V90-3.0 MW turbine and 7 units of the V80-2.0 MW turbine. The order has been placed by one of the top five utilities in Spain.

The order comprises supply, installation, commissioning and the VestasOnlineTM Business SCADA solution. The contract also includes a five-year service agreement. The projects will be located in the provinces of León in the region of Castilla y León and in Lugo in the region of Galicia. With 2,951 MW and 2,818 MW, respectively, installed by 1 January 2008, the regions of Galicia and Castilla y León rank second and third in Spain in terms of total installed wind capacity.

“With this new order, we are further strengthening our position in Spain and in particular in the regions of Galicia and Castilla y León,” says Juan Araluce, President of Vestas Mediterranean A/S.

Delivery of the wind turbines will begin during the last quarter of 2008. The production from the four wind power plants will satisfy the electricity needs of approx 74,000 Spanish households and will correspond to an annual emission saving of more than 190,000 tons of CO2. The above order does not affect the Vestas Group’s expectations for 2008, cf. Company announcement No. 13/2008 of 27 February 2008.

Any questions in relation to the order may be addressed to Juan Araluce, President of Vestas Mediterranean A/S, telephone +34 93 241 98 00, or to Peter Wenzel Kruse, Senior Vice President of Group Communications at Vestas Wind Systems A/S, telephone +45 97300000.
