Vestas chief sales officer Juan Araluce said: “The current situation in the wind industry and in the global market calls for Vestas to have a different strategic approach to the very important Central European market, and going forward we will focus more on dedicated sales and commercial activities in this region.

“There is no doubt that Central Europe, and Germany in particular, is very important to Vestas and with this change we expect to be able to transform Vestas Central Europe into an even more competitive entity.
