Vestas Wind Systems (OTCPK:VWDRY) says it has won a 30 MW order for taller-than usual wind turbines in Finland that are able to reap more power during low winds.

The order for nine V126-3.3 MW turbines from Reconcept GmbH is for the Ylivieska Pajukoski project in Finland’s Ylivieska region, and includes a 12-year service contract.

The towers will have a height to the hub of 137 meters (449 ft.), allowing for longer rotors that generate more energy in areas with low wind speeds.
