Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S won an order to build 13 two-megawatt turbines in South Korea. The buyer and value of contract weren’t disclosed.
The plant will be in South Korea’s northeastern Gangwon Province, Aarhus, Denmark-based Vestas Wind said in a statement Thursday on its website. The unnamed buyer was described as one of the largest South Korean conglomerates.
“South Korea is an increasingly attractive wind energy market as the country continues diversifying its energy mix to reduce dependence on nuclear power and imported fossil fuels,” Danny Nielsen, head of Vestas Pan-Asia, said in the statement.
