Orders pick up in the US but UK takes the lead

WORLDWIDE: Turbine purchase agreements recorded from April to mid-June reached over 6GW, indicating continued good industry health.

Europe, as in the first quarter, led the deals, with 3,646MW recorded, over twice that of North America (1,519MW). Again, the UK pushed the figures, with offshore projects making the biggest difference.

This quarter figures include a 960MW conditional deal for MHI-Vestas at Navitus Bay, one of four projects involving the new joint venture. Siemens secured one UK offshore project at East Anglia 1 for 714MW.

Asia-Pacific's activity was, unusually, led by India with 279MW while China's reported turbine deals agreed reached 198MW, a modest amount by the country's standards.

South Africa recorded another 120MW turbine activity, signalling the expected growth in this country.
