Vestas having installed 55,000 turbines and 70 GW of capacity in 74 countries across six continents is strong evidence of our ability to provide wind energy solutions anywhere in the world.

Globally in 2014, wind energy accounted for about 20 percent of all newly installed power generation capacity, and that share is set to continue growing in the future.The 55,000th turbine is a V112-3.0 MW that has been installed at the 27 MW Wallroth-Schlüchtern wind park in Hesse, Germany.

That the milestone has been reached here testifies to the importance of the German market, which is the biggest in Europe and the second largest market for Vestas globally.

Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order in Michigan, USA, for 72 V110-2.0 MW turbines, with a total capacity of 144 MW.
