MHI Vestas is opening its new assembly factory in the port of Esbjerg in Denmark. The facility will employ approximately 80 staff to assemble power converter modules for the manfuacturer's V164 turbine. The work was previously carried out at Lorc in Munkebo, but will now be relocated to a larger facility, announced the offshore wind turbine manufacturer.

"MHI Vestas is proud to be a major contributor to the development of pre-assembly skillsets and the establishment of competence centres throughout regional Denmark. It’s exciting to see the new facility up and running at the Port of Esbjerg as the next manufacturing phase of the company takes shape," said Chief Manufacturing Officer, Robert Borin, in a press release.
