Brief Company Description: WIND. It means the world to us. A world that, if we have our way, will be powered by far, far more than the predicted 10% of electricty by wind by 2020. A world where Wind takes its place alongside Oil & Gas through ever more competitive cost of electricity and its efficient and reliable delivery on an industrial and global scale A world populated by far more than the 40,000 turbines that we’ve already raised on behalf of our customers in sixty five countries across five continents A world where we are relentlessly committed to focusing our 30 years pioneering pure-play experience, our R&D centre (the largest in the world), every shred of revelatory data from our real-time monitoring of thousands of turbines; and the unmatched diversity of capability and skills residing in our more than 20,000 people worldwide, on one pure goal: generating the greatest and most sustainable return on wind for our customers. Because a world without our customers success is a world without Wind. That failure is not an option, neither for Vestas, our customers, or our planet.
