Vestas is committed to delivering value to its customers. In the power generation industry, reliability is key. Securing outstanding performance levels for all wind turbines through Six Sigma philosophy is a major objective for Vestas. Since 2007, the company has been steadily improving its performance. It raised the bar to Four Sigma by 2008 and Five Sigma by 2010. Vestas will continue its journey towards Six Sigma because achieving parity with oil, gas and coal requires this level of quality.
