Vestas has announced that it will open an engineering site in Louisville, Colo., to support global operations and enhance the company's wind power production capabilities throughout North America.
Vestas will move 46 employees into 47,675 square feet of space on Centennial Parkway, and will expand this team to include up to 125 skilled engineers within a year's time.
The Vestas engineering site will enhance the company's ability to integrate product development by placing it close to the company's three factories – a blade factory in Windsor, Colo.; a nacelles assembly factory in Brighton, Colo.; and a tower factory Pueblo, Colo.
The new engineering site will focus specifically on increasing wind turbine efficiency and lowering energy costs to ensure that wind is cost-effective for customers. The site will work to improve technology for existing turbines and develop the wind power systems of the future.
