“With this order, Falck Renewables Vind AS shows full confidence in the solution we have developed and the efficiency of our technology. By introducing V136-4.2 MW turbine to the Norwegian market and using site specific towers, the Svelgen project achieves very competitive levelised cost of energy under extremely challenging climatic conditions and high wind speeds”, states Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern and Central Europe.
