In 2018, Vestas installed several wind parks with 2 MW platform turbines and hub height of 137m, which at the time was the hub height record for China’s wind industry.

The order includes a 2-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement, as well as VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution. Delivery and commissioning are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2019.
