Large Orders for Vestas Placed by Toyota Tsusho Corp.

Vestas has received orders for 81 units of the V80-2.0 megawatt (MW) wind turbine and 31 units of the V90-3.0 MW wind turbine for nine wind power projects in Japan, Taiwan and South Korea. The orders have been placed by Toyota Tsusho Corporation in Japan, a trading company under the Toyota Motors group of companies.

Delivery of the turbines will take place during 2007 and 2008, and installation of the turbines will start during the summer of 2007 and will continue through 2008. For these projects, Toyota Tsusho Corporation is focusing on Vestas’ proven concept of the 2 MW platform, and is furthermore including Vestas’ 3 MW platform for two projects in Japan. Toyota Tsusho Corporation has already purchased Vestas turbines in Japan for a total capacity of more than 250 MW. Wind farm business has been recognized as one of the important elements in Toyota Tsusho Corporation’s value chain and is therefore a priority when it comes to development and investment in renewable energy. “Development of the renewable energy sector for protection of the environment is of great importance to the Toyota Group as it is an important element in the long-term strategic plan of the Group,” said Hisashi Yamamoto, Executive Officer of Toyota Tsusho Corporation.
