Vestas consolidate Singapore presence
Vestas Singapore will house over 200 staff members, including 120 engineers, currently employed by Vestas' various business units in Singapore. Singapore will now serve as Vestas regional headquarters for Sales and Operations, R&D, Group IT and Spare Parts and Repair.
The company has also signed an agreement with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) to set up a Joint Materials Lab within the School of Materials Science and Engineering. NTU is one of seven preferred university partners that Vestas has identified globally for value-added collaborations across multi-disciplinary areas of science and technology. Vestas has had Master Research Agreements in place with NTU, National University of Singapore and Singapore's Agency for Science, Technology and Research since 2007.
Vestas established its Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore in 2006 and has since expanded its regional presence with sales and service offices in Australia, South Korea, India, Japan, New Zealand, Philippines and Taiwan. It has installed 5,557 wind turbines with a combined total of more than 4,600 MW wind power projects commissioned I Asia as of December 2010.
