Vestas is continuing to invest in servicing. The Danish manufacturer has launched is first South American service center at Parnamirim in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte, which is home to nearly a third of Brazil's total wind capacity, reports local media Tribuna do Norte. The center will initially employ about 100 staff and on top of servicing Vestas' own 800 MW turbines, it aims to secure service contracts on turbines produced by other manufacturers.

"We will service the farms which are operated with our technology, but also those which are operated by technologies from other producers," says Vestas' Brazilian country manager, Rogerio Zampronha.
