The Danish wind turbine producer Vestas has enjoyed a busy week so far, attracting no less than three orders from the US, Finland and Thailand.

On Tuesday, the company received an order for 70 V110-1.8 MW turbines for the Had Kanghan project, located in the Songkla and Nakhon Si Thamarat provinces of Thailand.

“We are pleased that Energy Absolute has selected Vestas to partner with them for their first wind energy project, which will contribute to enhancing Thailand’s energy independence”, said Chris Beaufait, the president of Vestas Asia Pacific & China.

“With our technologically advanced 2 MW variant turbine and our unique tower crane solution, which is well-suited for this project, Vestas can provide Energy Absolute a superior annual energy production and low cost of energy, helping to secure business case certainty for their investment.”
