UTRECHT, the Netherlands, October 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Stork Technical Services New Zealand Ltd have been working with Vestas, a
Danish global wind turbine manufacturer for several years, supplying
specialised  Multi-Dimensional,   non-destructive testing on wind farm
turbines .   Stork Technical Services and Vestas have now formalised their
relationship via signing an evergreen contract.

With innovative ultrasonic techniques, an image of the inside of the
components used in wind turbines is made to define the condition of the
material. In this way the condition of the turbine can be identified without
the need to disassemble the turbine, and can be determined by Vestas whether
this requires maintenance or repair. Stork Technical Services developed the
innovative procedures and knowledge base in New Zealand where the work
originated.

For Stork Technical Services this cooperation is a great opportunity to work
within a growing sector of the power industry on a global base for the world's
largest Wind turbine manufacturer.

Tony McAnulty, Vice President Asia & Pacific of Stork Technical Services
stated:

"The team in New Zealand have worked together with Vestas for 3 to 4 years on
this project and we are now very excited to formalize the contractual
arrangements.

This contract provides a tailored solution for Vestas and is another example
of the ONE Stork strategy. With a combination of several Stork Business- and
Product Lines: Integrity Solutions, Rotating Equipment, Gears & Services and
the Rope Access services of the Business Line Fabric Maintenance and using an
experimental and innovative technique, Stork's Thinking & Doing is once again
proven.

As part of the contract, Stork Technical Services will also set up training
facilities for the Vestas, supervise and interpret the outcome of the test
results. Aligned with that, Stork will supervise an ASNT technical quality
programme to ensure technical standards are maintained.
