MHI Vestasí buildings are in progress
MHI Vestas has completed the steel structure in Fawley Paint & Logistics located in Hampshire, UK. The the Facility is to open in mid 2018. In November 2017, MHI Vestas announced that they were going to remake the closed Fawley power plant to a new painting and logistics facility for its 80 meter wings.
According to the company, the new facility is a direct result of strong demand for the V164 offshore wind turbine and will be a supplement to the production facility on the Isle of Wight in Great Britain, where the production of the wings takes place. The facility is expected to provide up to 50 new jobs in the Solent area.
The Fawley Paint & Logistics facility is the latest in a number of investments made in production that MHI Vestas has made lately as part of its industrialization strategy, which includes an increased production capacity on the Isle of Wight and in the Danish production centers in Nakskov and LindÝ.
