Vestas is poised to establish production in Indonesia as part of a transnational project, where at least 6 GW of wind and solar at a new plant in Australia will increase the share of green energy in Southeast Asia by 2025. The governments in the two countries and Denmark are also involved.

A gigantic energy project, Asia Renewable Energy Hub (AREH), is underway in Australia and several players will install a hybrid plant of at least 4 GW wind turbines from Vestas and 2 GW of solar. The plant will be installed in the Australian state of Western Australia, but power will transferred to Indonesia via underwater cables.
