Wind turbine OEM Vestas has extended a partnership with LM Wind Power – owned by rival GE Renewable Energy – for the design and manufacturing of blades for the super-sized V172-7.2MW machines of its EnVentus platform.

“This new partnership highlights how we are increasingly collaborating with partners in a flexible setup to scale efficiently and build on the foundations we have established across our global supply chain,” said Vestas chief operating officer Tommy Rahbek Nielsen.

“We aim to leverage LM Wind Power’s proven and extensive engineering and manufacturing capabilities coupled with their global footprint to support our customers with high-quality sustainable energy solutions meeting all Vestas standards.”
