On the basis of thorough internal analyses, Vestas projects a low market demand for the kilowatt platform in the coming years. Therefore, Vestas has decided to phase out the production of the kilowatt platform, including the V52-850 kW and V60-850 kW turbines.

Consequently, Vestas will terminate the production at its factory in Hohhot, China, where 300-350 employees will be made redundant. Vestas will honour all firm sales commitments for kilowatt turbines and make sure that any ongoing negotiations for kilowatt orders will be finalised. Servicing the kilowatt platform will remain an important business for Vestas and we will continue to offer comprehensive service solutions to the owners and operators of the kilowatt turbines. The termination of the production at the Hohhot factory will come into force over the summer and will lead to annual savings of around € 10 million. The cost of closing the factory is covered by the 2012 guidance for special items of € 50-100 million.
