A short profile of the Vestas Group
Vestas is the only global energy company dedicated exclusively to wind energy – striving for business case certainty and the reduction of the cost of energy for our customers. Vestas works in close partnership with customers to offer the most effective solutions towards energy independence.
Our core business is the development, manufacture, sale, installation and maintenance of wind power plants – with competences that cover every aspect of the value chain from site studies to service and maintenance.
To date, we have installed over 43.000 wind turbines in around 70 countries on six continents. Along with this vast experience, we have the data to support the prediction that by 2020 as much as 10 per cent of the world’s electricity consumption will be generated by wind energy.
We manufacture most of our own key components. This increases the flexibility of our product development, reduces our dependence on suppliers, and enables us to maintain a high level of manufacturing know-how. At the same time, we carry out production and sourcing as close to the market as possible.
We also operate the world’s largest research and development centre for wind energy in Aarhus, Denmark, and we are currently establishing a new research and development centre in the US.
I think that we should also make a reference to the no. of employees and our focus on safety as first priority.
Our vision is to establish wind power on a par with existing energy sources such as oil and gas.
Vestas Mediterranean, our regional excellence center
Vestas Mediterranean is one of the seven Sales Business Units of the Vestas Group.

Vestas has a strong presence and a solid set-up in the Vestas Mediterranean region, allowing us to be closer to the markets where we operate and provide an even better and faster response to our customers.
Vestas Mediterranean has established sales offices and local service organizations in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, France, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Spain and Turkey aiming at continuously providing our customers with the best possible service.
