Vestas Wind Systems A/S (Randers, Denmark) has received an order for four projects in Inner Mongolia comprising a total of 232 units of the V52-850 kW turbine. The order has been received from China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power Co. Ltd., which is part of the China Guangdong Nuclear Group. The order includes supply and commissioning of the turbines, a VestasOnline Business SCADA system and a two-year maintenance and service agreement.

"We are very pleased that China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Power Co.

Like other nuclear power developers, China Guangdong Nuclear has in recent years been diversifying its activities from nuclear power into clean, safe and modern power production technologies like wind power.
