This Vestas factory opened in 2010, and produces nacelles for wind turbines. Just to the north is a blade factory that opened in 2011.
A nacelle is a cover housing that houses all of the generating components in a wind turbine, including the generator, gearbox, drive train, and brake assembly.
Vestas has installed over 41,000 wind turbines for a capacity of just under 40 GW in 63 countries on five continents. The company employs more than 22,000 people globally, and has built production facilities in more than 12 countries.
