Collaboration and partnership in new, innovative solutions will help us reach our goals of lower costs of renewable energy, "says Chief Commercial Officer Søren Karas.
The contract for servicing the 50 turbines at Nobelwind in Belgium's newest offshore windmill farm and the 55 turbines at Belwind 1 ensures that the cooperation continues between MHI Vestas Offshore Wind and Esvagt.
