Vestas wins 78MW wind turbine order for Sweden

SWEDEN: Vestas has been appointed by energy company Vindkompaniet i Kiruna to supply 78MW for a project in northern Sweden.

Vestas will supply 30 V100 2.6MW turbines for the Sjisjka wind farm. The project is expected to be complete by the end of 2012.

This is the second Swedish order Vestas has secured this year. In March, it won an order from Eolus Vind to supply 44MW for the Tolvmanstegen wind farm in the southwest of the country.

Last year, the Swedish wind energy industry added about 550MW of new capacity, bringing its total installed capacity to 2.1GW.

Most notable was the launch of Nordisk Vindkraft and HgCapital's 95.4MW Havsnas wind farm, predicted to generate some 250GWh.
