Based on projections of a low market demand for the kilowatt platform in the coming years, 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 laid off.
Vestas says it will honor all firm sales commitments for kilowatt turbines and make sure that any ongoing negotiations for kilowatt orders will be finalized considering the customers’ needs and Vestas’ profitability. Vestas said that servicing the kilowatt platform will remain an important business of its business.
