Digital Procurement

Procurement in Vestas is moving towards a digital future – with one portal for supplier collaboration. For our suppliers, this entails a new and digital way of interacting and transacting with Vestas. Digital Procurement covers the implementation of SAP Ariba in Vestas. The implementation offers one portal for Vestas to collaborate effectively with suppliers when we buy, invoice, select, negotiate agreements, and manage information and relationships – all in a simple, compliant and efficient way.

Scroll down to learn more about the specific Ariba modules that we are already using. You will also find our Supplier Quick Guides to help you get started and complete your tasks in Ariba.

Please watch the video below for a quick overview or see the Supplier Introduction & FAQ to learn more about the initiative.

Getting started
Vestas is continuously onboarding suppliers to Ariba based on region. You will be contacted by Vestas when we start onboarding suppliers in your region. If you are already in Ariba and want to transact with Vestas already now, please contact the Vestas Ariba team.
