Vestas roared back to take a clear lead in the global league table of wind turbine OEMs in 2021, as Siemens Gamesa lost its offshore crown in a market that was last year dominated by Chinese manufacturers, said analyst group BloombergNEF.

Danish group Vestas installed 15.2GW out of the record 99.2GW of machines added last year, leaving it well clear of second-placed Goldwind with 12GW, said BloombergNEF, whose annual figures are among the most closely watched in the industry.
