Even before the establishment of the new blade factory in China has been completed, the Vestas Group has decided to double the production capacity of the factory.
This factory is expected to be ready for production in May 2006, and the extension of the factory, which is expected to be operational by the middle of 2007, will double the original factory’s annual production capacity from approximately 600 blades to approximately 1,200 blades. Furthermore, the extension will increase the number of staff from approximately 240 to approximately 400 employees. Apart from a doubling of the production area, the extension includes a shared administrative building together with the factory for assembly of nacelles and hubs. The total investment in the extension is expected to amount to approximately € 13 million.
