Improvements to the risk management system(RMS) and the means to implement this RMS within the project management group at Vestas Americas are proposed in this report. Wind farm construction is a complex process that does not require advanced innovative technology. Therefore this process requires a “qualitative” risk response plan [1]. Vestas’ current risk plan is not comprehensive. At present, project managers focus on the critical path and on managing current risks. They look at current risks using probability and impact assessments that vary from project to project and from manager to manager.
