Join Team Vestas Wind in Auckland

27th February - 15th March 2015

Join Team Vestas Wind in Auckland

Auckland welcomes Team Vestas Wind to New Zealand, home to four team members

We're back in the southern hemisphere in what is to be our most heartwarming stopover - this is home to no less than four members of Team Vestas Wind (including shore crew), and an opportunity for friends and family of our neighbouring Aussie teammates to join us too.

It will also be an emotional reencounter for Vestas - we pioneered the New Zealand market back in 1994 when we installed the first commercial wind turbine in Brooklyn, Wellington. Since then, we've added nearly 350 MW of wind energy to the NZ energy mix.

Our Team may be busy repairing the Vestas Wind in Italy, but crewmembers and our commercial team will gladly welcome you in New Zealand. Learn about Team Vestas Wind's race to rejoin the Race at the Volvo Ocean 65 Cross Section experience and check out the "Expect the Unexpected" movie in the "Another day at the office" dome.
