In the latest of what will be a year-long celebration of diplomatic ties between Denmark and Japan, MHI Vestas hosted His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince of Japan at the company’s factory in Lindø today. As a Japanese and Danish joint venture, the offshore wind turbine manufacturer holds a unique perspective on the countries’ diplomatic relationship which extends to the royal families.

The amicable relationship between the Japanese Imperial Family and the Danish Royal Family is an important tie between the two nations and plays a significant role in the relationship between Denmark and Japan.

Jens Tommerup, CEO of MHI Vestas, said, “We are very honoured to host His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince of Japan at our factory in Lindø. Being a Japanese and Danish joint venture, MHI Vestas is the embodiment of the strong ties between Denmark and Japan. It is an extraordinary privilege to be part of the celebration marking 150 years of diplomatic relations between our two countries.”

During the factory visit, His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince of Japan was warmly received by Japanese and Danish executives of the company, toured the nacelle manufacturing area and also climbed inside a nacelle for an up-close look at the turbine’s technological components.

Tetsushi Mizuno, Co-CEO of MHI Vestas, said, “MHI Vestas Offshore Wind is humbled by the visit of His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince of Japan. A visit such as this is a proud occasion for everyone in our company and also for our parent companies, Vestas and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. We were very grateful to represent MHI Vestas and the offshore wind industry on this historic visit.”
The royal visit comes as MHI Vestas continues to personify the power of international partnership with parent companies Vestas and Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI).
