The company also announced its pre-tax earnings for the year rose by 28% to EUR856m while revenue increased by 10% to EUR6.6billion. Vestas said the performance represented its "best ever results."
In 2010, the company expects to achieve a pre-tax margin of 10-11% and revenue of EUR7bn. Previously it expected 10-12% pre-tax margin and EUR7-8billion in revenue.
Europe will account for almost half of Vestas 2010 intake. The Americas and Asia-Pacific will account for 30% and 20% respectively.
Vestas’ growth in orders echoed that of Suzlon, which announced in its own annual figures last month that it had 1.5GW in orders for 2010.
