Danish OEM Vestas is planning to build a hub and nacelle assembly facility in Buenos Aires, Argentina, aiming to meet the country’s “huge” wind energy growth potential.

Vestas said the new facility is expected to meet the country's potential of around 10GW of new installations by 2025.

With the new production facility in Argentina, Vestas aims to optimise production while creating around 300 direct and indirect jobs.

“Our leadership position with more than 900MW of either installed capacity or capacity under construction underlines the need to take a big step forward to better support the government's ambitions for renewable energy,” said sales director for Latin American South Cone, Andrés Gismondi.
