For a wind power project in Canada, the Vestas Group has received an order for 12 units of V82-1.65 MW wind turbines and an additional 51 units of V82-1.65 MW wind turbines subject to successful test of the first 12 units.
The wind power project will be installed and commissioned by 31 December 2005.
