According to MHI Vestas, the facility is scheduled for opening in mid-2018, after which the company will begin painting its 80-meter turbine blades and storing them on the site.

In November last year, the company announced it will repurpose the decommissioned Fawley Power Plant into a new painting and logistics facility for the 80m blades.

MHI Vestas said the investment is a direct result of a strong demand for the V164 offshore wind turbine platform, and the new facility will complement the company’s manufacturing facility on the Isle of Wight, UK, where the blades are produced.

The Fawley facility is the latest in a series of production investments MHI Vestas made as part of its industrialization strategy, including an increase in production capacity on the Isle of Wight, as well as in Danish manufacturing centers in Nakskov and Lindø.
