Vestas to Create Unified Technology, Manufacturing, and Supply Chain Division

Vestas has announced a significant restructuring aimed at improving its wind energy solutions delivery. The company will merge its Technology (CTO) and Manufacturing & Global Procurement (COO) organizations into a single entity named the Technology and Operations organization (CTOO). This new unified structure is designed to strengthen Vestas’ end-to-end delivery approach and streamline operations within the company and its broader value chain.

The CTOO organization will be led by the current Chief Technology Officer, Anders Nielsen, and is expected to be fully operational by the third quarter of 2024. This strategic move builds on Vestas’ existing global and regional operating models, ensuring minimal disruption to ongoing operations and project executions for the year.

With the formation of the CTOO, Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, the current COO, will be stepping down after over 25 years with the company. His departure will follow a transition period ending in June 2024.

Henrik Andersen, Vestas’ Group President & CEO, highlighted the importance of this organizational evolution, stating, “The united CTOO-organisation will help accelerate ramp-up and industrialisation across Vestas and the industry by simplifying interfaces, collaboration and strengthening our end-to-end approach.” Andersen also praised Tommy Rahbek Nielsen for his pivotal role in maintaining operations during the pandemic and his contributions to maturing the COO organization.

This merger is focused solely on senior management restructuring and is not expected to impact operational-level roles within Vestas. The company remains committed to meeting its customer commitments and advancing its industrialization efforts in the wind energy sector.
