With 13.69 GW, the global order intake was 7 percent – corresponding to 875 MW – higher than the same quarter last year, which has thus until now held the record for the largest intake in a first quarter, shows new figures from Wood Mackenzie.

With its order intake of 3,004 MW in Q1, the Danish wind turbine manufacturer could celebrate a full year on the throne as the world's leading supplier, with orders totaling 15,598 MW from April 2018 to March 2019. This is due to factors like the company's sales of its largest wind turbines, the analyst firm asserts.
