However, there is no indication that the incident has impacted third party operations, including customer and supply chain operations.
Vestas’ manufacturing, construction and service teams have been able to continue operations, although several operational IT systems have been shut down as a precaution. Vestas has already initiated a gradual and controlled reopening of all IT systems.
