Recently, Vestas announced that it plans to close three factories in Europe:
Lauchhammer, Germany (460 employees), production will stop before the end of 2021
Viveiro, Spain (115 employees), production will stop before the end of 2021
Esbjerg, Denmark (75 employees), production will stop in the first half of 2022
According to Vestas, the closure is to meet the requirements of the company’s changing product portfolio, and the company will try to divert workers to other local factories.
According to local legal requirements, Vestas is initiating legal procedures for all affected employees and negotiating with workers’ representatives and local trade unions.
