Vestas signs First 17 MW as Part of a 184 MW Onshore Framework Agreement in Denmark

Vestas has signed a framework agreement to deliver 184 MW over three years with a long-term Danish customer, with the first 17 MW now firm and unconditional. The deal represents the largest single onshore customer framework agreement in Vestas’ history in Denmark and points to a positive future for the Danish wind market.

The first 17 MW of the deal will be delivered in 2013 together with a 15-year AOM 5000 service agreement.

Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe says, “This frame work agreement is exciting and an indication of Vestas focussing on what really matters for the customer. The framework agreement will include long-term service agreements securing further jobs in the Danish wind sector. Long-lasting relationships make a difference.”

Krister Poole Jönsson, Vice President of Sales in Vestas’ Nordic region says the deal demonstrates the strength of Vestas’ position in the Danish wind energy market.

“Signing this strategic agreement to deliver wind turbines over three years in Denmark shows the wind market in Denmark remains strong and our customers are committed to working together with Vestas.”
