Vestas to supply towers for third parties for North American wind power projects

Friday, Jan 18, 2013

Vestas is implementing its plan to create a more flexible and scalable business to adapt the company to the uncertain market situation in the wind industry. Part of this plan is to more effectively use the existing production capacity. This new agreement is a step in securing this.

The agreement means Vestas will ramp up at its tower factory in Pueblo, Colorado, USA. Vestas soon will begin manufacturing the first part of the third-party tower supply agreement that could use up to 25 per cent of the production capacity. The agreement will create more than 100 jobs by the end of the first quarter of 2013.

“We are pleased with this new agreement. Vestas is known for having industry-leading quality in our manufacturing processes and facilities, and it is satisfying that other companies recognise this by choosing to use our factories to produce components for their projects,” said Jean-Marc Lechêne, Executive Vice President & COO for Vestas Wind Systems A/S.
