“We are glad to see the first EnVentus order in Portugal. The V162-6.2 MW delivers industry-leading energy production and we expect our technology to make a significant contribution to the energy transition in the region. This order also underlines the versatility of the Vestas portfolio, which can optimise our customers’ business cases in a diverse range of wind sites”,says Agustín Sánchez Tembleque, Vestas General Manager for Spain and Portugal.
