Vestas Wind Systems AS said Tuesday that it has introduced a new wind turbine that offers enhanced performance in low- to medium-wind conditions.

Based on its EnVentus turbine platform--a standardized platform that enables the use of different wind-turbine variants--the new V172-7.2 megawatt turbine delivers a 12% increase in annual energy production compared to its V162-6.2 megawatt variant in low-wind conditions, it said.

The new turbine delivers flexible power outputs and can be applied to all conditions, with solutions for cold and hot climates, it added.

"The V172-7.2 megawatt demonstrates how our modular product development can enable customizable solutions, suited to any environment," says Vestas Chief Technology Officer Anders Nielsen.

Vestas shares rose 10% on the news to DKK220.35.
