Vestas Hits 100 GW Windpower Milestone

Vestas has become the first company to install 100 GW of wind turbines.

The milestone for the Danish renewables company was reached with the installation of a turbine at MidAmerican Energy’s Wind XI project in Iowa, in the US

Vestas installed its first turbine in Denmark in 1979 and since then has delivered over 66,000 in around 80 countries.

“We have pioneered wind energy across the globe for 40 years and to install 100 GW together is something we are extremely proud of as it underlines how far Vestas and wind energy have come,” said Vestas president Anders Runevad.

“Reaching this milestone has required continuous innovation, strong commitment and great execution from all Vestas’ employees, and the 100 GW therefore represents a key part of the foundation that enables us to develop the sustainable energy solutions of the future”.
