Vestas wants largest offshore wind turbine

The loan that Vestas recently received by nine banks, enables the company to immediately continue. The Danish wind turbine maker wants to build the largest offshore wind turbine ever made.

Vestas is, according to Bloomberg, going to cooperate with Mitsubishi to place a wind turbine with a capacity of 8 megawatts. It has to be the largest offshore wind turbine in the world. Siemens is currently testing a turbine of 6 MW.

Earlier, their were rumors that Mitsubishi would take over the Danish company. With the loan Vestas will be in a better position to negotiate with the Japanese. Bloomberg suggests that a joint venture is now more obvious.
