Vestas has confirmed that it is in talks with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) regarding a potential strategic cooperation.

MHI has not confirmed or denied the ongoing dialogue. However, in a statement on its website, the company stated that "none of those reports on the matter are based upon MHI's own announcement."

Vestas, on the other hand, says it will make a company announcement if the dialogue results in an agreement between the two companies.
