Vestas celebrates 100GW milestone
11 January, 2019
Denmark’s Vestas has become the first company to install 100GW of wind turbines.
In late 2018, Vestas achieved 100GW of installed wind turbines with the installation of a V110-2.0 MW turbine at MidAmerican Energy’s Wind XI project in Iowa, the US.
Since the inaugural installation of a V10-30kW turbine in Denmark in 1979, Vestas has installed over 66,000 turbines in 80 countries across six continents.
By crossing the 100GW threshold, Vestas has installed approximately 10% of the world’s total 1TW of installed wind and solar energy capacity.
