A tough year, but Vestas is still the world champion

Vestas held on to top spot, while Goldwind rose to second place in the ranking of global wind turbine manufacturers last year, according to two leading consultancies.

MAKE says: “Vestas was able to maintain its position as the world’s largest turbine original equipment manufacturer [OEM] in 2011 in spite of the strength of the Chinese turbine OEMs in their 17.6GW domestic market.” A strong showing in the Americas allowed Vestas to “distance itself from the rest of the top five market players”, it adds.
