The office will focus on project activity, sales, and market strategy as MHI Vestas gears up for the installation of its V164-9.5 MW turbines at the 800MW Vineyard Wind offshore wind farm.

“Choosing Boston, and now opening the office, shows MHI Vestas’ commitment to the US offshore wind market and to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts,” said Philippe Kavafyan, CEO of MHI Vestas.

“We feel this is the right location to deliver on Vineyard Wind, the first large-scale, commercial offshore wind project in the US, and to contribute to future projects in the region.”

The new office, located at the Cambridge Innovation Center, will be led by Jason Folsom, MHI Vestas US National Sales Director. The company has already hired its first staff members at the new location and will continue expanding for the foreseeable future.

“By MHI Vestas establishing a presence in the Commonwealth, they show a firm commitment to partnering with those of us working to grow this new Massachusetts industry,” Massachusetts State Representative, Patricia Haddad, said.
