WindEnergy 2014: Wind industry reacts to Ukraine's strife

GERMANY: The president of Vestas Central Europe has told Windpower TV he is "a little concerned" with the ongoing crisis in Eastern Europe.

Christoph Vogel said the manufacturer is watching the instability in the Ukraine "very carefully".

"It's a very delicate situation, given the political uncertainty in the Ukraine in particular.

"We have close interaction with our business partners and our employees to make sure that they are safe but also so we make sure the business opportunities that exist in the Ukraine can be attacked as soon as possible and as soon as the political situation has stablised," he said.

The head of Vestas Central Europe also said the company is having to adapt to the new renewable energy law recently brought in to place in Germany.

The new law "creates uncertainties to it and we have to master that," Vogel added.

Vogel was appointed president of the Central Europe division in Europe in May.
