“The USA boasts excellent wind resources, and Vestas is pleased to be playing an active role in the utilisation of its wind potential. Not only will the 44 wind turbines be a source of clean and renewable energy, they will also contribute to the creation of new local jobs,” said Jens Søby, President of Vestas Americas.
