We stand on the shoulders of giants
Established in April 2014, we are a joint venture between Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and Vestas Wind Systems A/S (Vestas). Our parent companies are two of the global leaders in wind and energy, inspiring and leading us forward.

We like this planet. And we believe that by harnessing the power of wind, we can help safe guard it. We are collaborative at heart and believe that together with our industry peers and partners we can ensure that offshore wind is not only an alternate energy source, but a stable, affordable and key part of the energy mix.
Our vision therefore is,
“To be a leading player in the offshore industry by co-developing offshore wind as a financially viable and sustainable energy source to benefit future generations.”
