MHI Vestas' takeover of a former oil-fired power plant in the southern UK city of Fawley will transform the site from black to green.

From now on, wind turbine blades will be painted and logistics coordinated from the plant, which since the 1970s and until recently had served as a CO2-emitting plant firing oil. The plant, which was at 2,000 MW at its largest, was closed in 2015 and will now form the heart of a green transition in an area which until recently was heavily concentrated in fossil fuel production.
