Vestas and Hempel are teaming up in a new strategic partnership to cooperate around solutions for surface protection of wind turbines. The joint Vestas and Hempel ambition is to reduce surface treatment costs and support sustainable coating solutions.
In Vestas’ wind tower manufacturing facility in Colorado, USA, the companies will take the first step of the partnership, as they will closely collaborate on bringing down costs and exploring new digital solutions to improve quality control and the CO2 footprint of the production of wind turbines. Initial calculations demonstrate that changing the processes surrounding the surface treatment application will potentially generate a 60% reduction in CO2 emissions equal to 1,100 tonnes CO2e per year.
