Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI) of Tokyo has announced plans to triple its production capacity of wind turbine generators from its current 400 MW per year to 1,200 MW per year by the end of fiscal 2008.

According to the company, the production increase is in response to the continuing market demand, particularly in the U.S. To achieve this goal, MHI will invest approximately 4 billion yen. Specifically, the company will improve and expand wind turbine nacelle production facilities at its Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works and Yokohama Dockyard & Machinery Works. At the same time, the wind turbine blade production plant of VienTek LLC in Mexico, which manufactures blades mainly for the U.S. market, will be expanded to cope with the production increase, the company adds.
