MHI Vestas hires new employees

MHI Vestas hires new employees

06-10-2016 12:00:00

MHI Vestas has hired 500 new employees in the past seven months, so now the company has more than 1,300 employees in total. It will especially benefit Nakskov. Here, 170 new jobs have been established and 70 more are expected before the end of the year.

"We make wings here in Nakskov and in our UK factory on the Isle of Wight, and when we ramp the factory up, it is because we have a good line of orders that supports it," says plant manager Bo Vermund Jensen, who has recruited the most of the new employees among the old Vestas employees who were fired in 2010.

When MHI Vestas has a good line of orders it is not completely random as the company is strong, says Sydbank's head of equity research, Jacob Pedersen.

"Looking at all the providers on the expanding offshore wind market, I see MHI Vestas as one of the strongest. It is a company that has all the potential to make their mark. Siemens has done very well, and they have almost had free hands in this industry. But MHI Vestas has one of the industry's best products and a strong organization. They can be a big player in the industry," he says.

MHI Vestas will among other things provide turbines for Horns Rev 3, which Vattenfall is responsible for the construction of in the North Sea off Esbjerg. In addition, MHI Vestas will also supply turbines for Aberdeen offshore wind farm, where the Vattenfall-owned company, Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Ltd, has ordered 11 V164-8.0 MW wind turbines from MHI Vestas.
