Vestas throwing wild after party following record year

The turbine manufacturer follows up on last year's historic order intake with the largest amount of orders for a first quarter ever. Nearly half of orders are for the most powerful turbine.

In recent years, Vestas has been following a somewhat set template: From spring, orders start to slowly roll in, often through smaller order announcements around the world until summer, in September it picks up speed with more orders and in the fourth quarter things run amok, leading up to an increasingly more impressive new year's party.
