MHI Vestas hosted His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince of Japan at the company’s factory in Lindø today.

The offshore wind turbine manufacturer said that, as a Japanese and Danish joint venture, it holds a unique perspective on the countries’ diplomatic relationship which extends to the royal families.

Jens Tommerup, CEO of MHI Vestas, said: “We are very honoured to host His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince of Japan at our factory in Lindø. Being a Japanese and Danish joint venture, MHI Vestas is the embodiment of the strong ties between Denmark and Japan. It is an extraordinary privilege to be part of the celebration marking 150 years of diplomatic relations between our two countries.”

During the factory visit, His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince of Japan was received by Japanese and Danish executives of the company, toured the nacelle manufacturing area and also climbed inside a nacelle for an up-close look at the turbine’s technological components.

Tetsushi Mizuno, Co-CEO of MHI Vestas, said: “MHI Vestas Offshore Wind is humbled by the visit of His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince of Japan. A visit such as this is a proud occasion for everyone in our company and also for our parent companies, Vestas and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. We were very grateful to represent MHI Vestas and the offshore wind industry on this historic visit.”
