The V236-15.0 MW offshore wind turbine is built on proven, world-class technology and engineered for efficiency in offshore environments around the world. Vestas has won more than 2.8 GW of firm orders for the V236-15.0 MW for which it secured type certificate in November 2023, and will begin serial production in 2024.

If and when the agreement materialises in a firm and unconditional order for Vestas, it will enter into Vestas’ wind turbine order backlog.
