In accordance with its V164 manufacturing plan, MHI Vestas continues to ramp up production for the 8 MW offshore wind turbine. The next phase of the companies production plan calls for a hiring ramp up for blade manufacturing in Nakskov, nacelle production in Lindø, and Power Converter Modules (PCM’s) at the Port of Esbjerg.
PCM modules will be assembled in Esbjerg from Q4 2017. The Port of Esbjerg has held a public tender for development of a purpose-built 5,600 square meter facility to accommodate PCM assembly for MHI Vestas. The hi-tech facility will create a dedicated space for PCM assembly, located close to pre-assembly, and will enable the company to further utilise the Port of Esbjerg’s expanding offshore wind expertise.
