Vestas has announced to adapt its rotor blade production to the new market conditions in Europe and to reduce the production of V136 rotor blades in order to be able to invest in other blade types. This is accompanied by the elimination of 590 jobs at the plants in Lauchhammer, Germany, and Lem, Denmark.

“Today’s very competitive industry and the fast-moving energy transition means we must introduce new products and solutions where and when the market requires them. Our continued competitiveness in this environment means we must adjust our global manufacturing footprint to ensure we proactively manage our cost base and invest in new solutions to capture future growth”, says Jean-Marc Lechêne, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Vestas. “We’re pleased that our new EnVentus and 4 MW platform solutions are very well-received by our customers all over the world, but the resulting manufacturing changes mean we must unfortunately let go of good, hardworking colleagues”.
