Vestas recently announced that it would layoff 10% of its workforce, with the loss of some 2,335 jobs around the world, as part of a restructuring to cut costs by EUR150m. In Brazil, however, the company is expanding and is employing new staff.
Vestas is understood to be taking on new workers at Sebrae, in the Fortaleza region, in the Brazilian State of Ceará, for its nacelle plant. The Vestas nacelle manufacturing plant at Maracanaú, Ceará, its first in Latin America, was completed in October last year and will enter into commercial operation in May 2012, reaching full capacity production in July. It is already assembling turbines for deployment at wind energy projects around Brazil.
The new employees will be expected to participate in a three month training course at the Vestas plant in Colorado, in the US, before the Ceará factory comes online in May.
