Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, Executive VP & COO, Vestas, informed, “We aim to leverage LM Wind Power’s proven and extensive engineering and manufacturing capabilities coupled with their global footprint to support our customers with high-quality sustainable energy solutions meeting all Vestas standards.”

Vestas said that LM Wind Power will work with it throughout the blade development phase to optimise the blade design, the manufacturing setup and supply globally based on Vestas’ specifications and requirements. LM Wind Power will begin the production in the second half of 2024.

As per the official statement, the new agreement is a continuation of the existing Vestas and LM Wind Power partnership to manufacture V150 blades in Brazil. Vestas held that sharing manufacturing operations across the renewables industry is more relevant than ever to ensure sites are not sitting idle and creates a flexible, scalable and efficient supply chain that enables industrial scale to meet global net-zero ambitions.

Dorte Kamper, VP Sales & Marketing, LM Wind Power, stated, “Our teams are collaborating on the design and the global roll-out, leveraging our world-class engineering and manufacturing capabilities. Building on decades of experience in delivering high quality and sustainable blades to the global wind industry, we look forward to continuously contributing to the energy transition in partnership with Vestas.”

Vestas introduced the V172-7.2 MW wind turbine with global applicability in April, 2022. The EnVentus platform now includes four different wind turbine variants, and since the launch of the EnVentus platform in 2019, Vestas has secured orders for more than 6 GW across 15 different markets on four continents.

Vestas has installed more than 157 GW of wind turbines in 88 countries and it claims that this is more wind power installation than any other player in the world.
