Vestas seals fleet electrification deal with Enel X

Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has sealed a deal with Enel X to help accelerate its adoption of electric vehicles (EVs).

Enel X will provide Vestas 370 EV charging stations.

The charging network will support Vestas’ fleets across workplace locations in 15 of its markets, including Europe and the US.

Enel X will also provide the Danish group with a cloud-based charging platform solution.

The collaboration marks a milestone in Vestas’ journey towards retiring conventional vehicles by 2025 and forms part of Vestas’ commitment to becoming carbon-neutral without the use of offsets by 2030.

Once the transition to EVs is complete, Vestas anticipates more than one-third of its scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions will be displaced.

Anders Nielsen, Chief Technology Officer at Vestas, said: "If we are to succeed with the energy transition across a global scale, industry leaders have a duty to implement the change we want to see.

"One of our key goals at Vestas is to enable more sustainable energy systems by supporting the increased deployment of renewable energy beyond power and into the transport sector."
