Valued German customer places order for 40 MW

Longstanding relationship continues with new order for reliable and productive turbine
(PresseBox) (Husum, ) Vestas is pleased to announce it has received an order for 20 V90-2.0 MW wind turbines from the UKA Group (UKA), for several wind energy projects in Eastern Germany. The total order has a capacity of 40 MW.

The scope of the order includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines and a longterm full service agreement. Delivery of the wind turbines is scheduled to be competed by the end of 2010.

This order by UKA to Vestas underlines the long and close relationship between Vestas and UKA, one of the leading wind energy developers in the growing Eastern German market. For 10 years, UKA and Vestas have been working together and building a solid business partnership.

"I am very happy to be taking a further step forward in our excellent partnership with UKA and supporting them in providing more clean wind energy capacity for Eastern Germany," says Hans Jørn Rieks, President of Vestas Central Europe. "For years, UKA has been an outstanding customer and we have been pleased to grow with them as its business has expanded and matured. Vestas and UKA work well as a team and I look forward to continuing our relationship well into the future."

Established in the Eastern German province of Saxony, UKA is a forwardlooking company specialising in developing and operating clean energy generation projects with a sustainable business case. UKA has developed wind farms with a combined generation capacity of approximately 165 MW, and stresses working cooperatively with landowners, communities, governments and other stakeholders in building wind energy projects.

"We are pleased once again to be working together with Vestas; our longstanding relationship has been very beneficial to both companies," says UKA Managing Director Gernot Gauglitz. "This order for Vestas turbines is one of many from UKA over the last several years and we find that Vestas' turbines provide a very good business case and a low cost of energy - both of which support our longterm business plans."

The Vestas V90-2.0 MW turbine has been designed to make the most of medium and low wind sites. Highly tested and verified, the V90-2.0 MW turbine has proven availability and reliability.

As of 31 December 2009, Vestas has supplied 5,754 turbines to Germany, representing 7,161.43 MW of clean energy generation capacity.
