The 500th nacelle is among those being shipped to the UK for installation in 2021, the turbine maker said.

MHI Vestas’ Lindø factory has been producing V164 nacelles since 2014, and currently employs 455 people.

The nacelle factory is among MHI Vestas’ three Danish manufacturing sites, along with its blade factory at Nakskov, and power conversion module (PCM) factory at Esbjerg.

“We are delighted to mark this milestone, having assembled the 500th V164 nacelle at Lindø,” said Martin Bjerregaard, Lindø Factory Director at MHI Vestas.

“Our 455 employees at Lindø can all be proud of their contribution to this achievement. After several years of producing V164 nacelles, I can safely say this is among the safest, most efficient and one of the most advanced nacelle assembly factories in the world. The 500th V164 nacelle is a symbol of that progress.”

The 500th V164 nacelle will now be prepared for transport to the UK on MHI Vestas’ purpose-built deck-carrier vessel BoldWind.
