Wind Turbine Manufacturing in North America

Vestas has invested more than $1 billion to establish several manufacturing facilities in Colorado to serve the North American onshore wind market. In 2023, Vestas announced it would manufacture the V163-4.5 MW turbine, bringing new investment and jobs to Colorado.

Stimulating Local Economies

Vestas has two North American manufacturing facilities in Brighton and Windsor, Colorado specializing in blades and nacelles. 

Vestas wind turbines are part of a thriving energy supply chain. In 2022, Vestas spent $1.6 billion across the USA supply chain with 1,200+ suppliers and $120 million across 200+ suppliers in Canada to support the production, construction, and operations of its turbine fleet.

Components from Vestas’ two factories are used primarily in North America, as well as being exported to Mexico, Uruguay, Brazil, and Europe.

To help bring the new V163-4.5 MW turbine to market, we are actively hiring in both factories.
