Vestas ended the year in style

After new orders poured in over the last two weeks of December, Vestas not only managed a record order intake in 2016 but has also technically secured upwards of 10-20 GW in future orders.

Danish turbine manufacturer Vestas was in overdrive this December, announcing no less than 16 new orders totaling 1,177 MW between Christmas and New Year's Eve. The bustling activity brings last year's order intake up to 9,267 MW, setting a new record even before announcing the undisclosed orders from the fourth quarter, which could boost the total closer to 10 GW.

The overwhelming majority of December orders unsurprisingly came from the US, Vestas' largest market, accounting for 11 of the total holiday orders.
