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.
