Vestas plans to manufacture and sell its V136-3.45 MW turbine and introduce an unprecedented level of service flexibility to the Chinese market.
Responding to global demand and Chinese customer interest, Vestas will introduce its largest onshore turbines to China. “We are continuously bringing our latest technologies, products, and service solutions to China, and we are determined to grow together with our partners in the country while simultaneously leveraging on the continuous supply chain localisation in China for global supply of the 3 MW platform. Our V136-3.45 MW turbine, which we will manufacture and intend to sell in China, is designed for exceptional energy capture, and it is ideal for the Chinese market”, says Chris Beaufait, President of Vestas Asia Pacific.
The V136-3.45 MW turbine combines Vestas’ largest onshore rotor diameter, the Vestas-patented Large Diameter Steel Tower technology, and Vestas’ most advanced blade design to-date. The turbine is the newest variant of the proven 3 MW platform, which is continuously optimised to strengthen Vestas’ product offerings, enabling Vestas to increase annual energy production (AEP), while at the same time decreasing sound emission levels.
We are also introducing our most flexible service offerings to China. Our customers can choose any combination of items to tailor the service package to their specific needs. In other words, whatever operation and maintenance strategies our customers are pursuing in China, we will be able to support them”, affirms Christian Venderby, Group Senior Vice President, Vestas Global Service.
Vestas operates and maintains around 60 GW of wind turbines globally, making Vestas the world’s largest wind turbine maintenance company.
