Portfolio investments

BladeRobots offer a unique, automated robotic solution for blade leading edge maintenance. The highly efficient and scalable solution was originally developed and incubated in the Innovation and Concepts department at Vestas. Vestas Ventures led the spin out of BladeRobots in December 2022 to accelerate global commercialisation.

Hysata is an Australian electrolyser company developing a new type of breakthrough hydrogen electrolyser with a novel cell architecture. Hysata’s mission is to accelerate the world’s shift away from fossil fuels to green hydrogen by delivering the world’s most efficient, simple, and reliable electrolyser. Vestas Ventures invested in Hysata in July 2022, as we see great potential in combining wind power with electrolysers for green hydrogen production.

Swedish developer of patented wind turbine towers made from sustainably-sourced engineered wood products. The modular tower design allows for ease of transportation with an ability to increase HUB height while descreasing costs and CO2 emissions from wind turbine towers. Vestas Ventures invested in Modvion, January 2021 to support and accelerate the deployment of sustainable Modvion towers.

Swedish developer and manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries for automotive, grid storage and industrial applications. Northvolt Ett, the company’s first Gigafactory powered 100% by renewable energy, will produce 16Gwh of battery capacity to be scaled up to 40GWh. In 2019, Northvolt raised capital from BMW, Goldman Sachs, Siemens, Scania and IKEA. Vestas has successfully engaged in several projects with Northvolt.

Swedish green tech company Skyrex, a subsidiary of Stena AB, which has developed the Salamander Quick Lift Crane Technology featuring a new top crane technology enabling heavy lifts on hub heights well beyond 200 metres. The crane can operate in higher wind speeds and requires a smaller pad onsite. Vestas Ventures invested in Skyrex Salamander Quick Lift Crane Technology in August 2021 to further strengthen its position as global leader in sustainable energy solutions and to reduce carbon emissions from its value chain.
