Vestas sells calibration unit

Vestas is selling its in-house calibration operation to specialist Exova Metech, which becomes the wind group’s long-term global supplier.

Exova Metech, part of global test and calibration group Exova, has agreed to take on 18 specialist staff and Vestas’ operations in Lem, Denmark and Denver, US – plus a further unit in China later this year.

The two companies have signed a long-term agreement that makes Exova Metech Vestas’ sole global supplier of calibration services.

Nicola Gianluca Raimondi, head of calibration at Vestas said: "We have worked with Exova Metech for many years and this deal secures the best calibration partner for our business.

“By outsourcing our calibration services, we can better focus on our core activities while maintaining the highest levels of technical service in this critical discipline."
