Lehtirova will be OX2’s largest wind power project to date, and we look forward to building it together with Vestas”, says Paul Stormoen, Managing Director of OX2 Wind.

Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe, adds that “We are very pleased that OX2 has decided to continue building on the already great relationship with Vestas – this time with an order for their largest ever wind park. And we are happy knowing that the order for our upgraded 3 MW platform, accompanied by Vestas’ de-icing technology, will ensure full power-curve capacity in cold northern Sweden, where the wind farm will be located”.
