MHI Vestas Offshore Wind announced today that it has chosen Boston for its US headquarters. The MHI Vestas office, which will officially open in the coming weeks, will be led Jason Folsom, the company’s US National Sales Director.
Additional administrative staff will be hired in the coming months as the company progresses its plans for the 800 MW Vineyard Wind project as well as exploring potential projects in nearby states. The Vineyard Wind project is large enough to serve as a catalyst for the build-up of a local supply chain in the region. Once the turbine supply order is confirmed, MHI Vestas will ramp up the process of local hiring and supply chain investment to support the project as it nears the construction phase.
