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.
