Danish wind OEM Vestas late last year reached 100GW in installed capacity with the installation of a V110-2.0MW turbine at MidAmerican Energy’s Wind XI project in the US state of Iowa, the manufacturer announced.

Since the inaugural installation of a V10-30 kW turbine in Denmark in 1979, Vestas has installed over 66,000 turbines in around 80 countries across six continents. Today, the OEM’s largest onshore wind turbine is the V150-4.2 MW turbine.

“We have pioneered wind energy across the globe for 40 years, and to install 100GW together with our customers and partners is something we are extremely proud of as it underlines how far Vestas and wind energy have come.
