- By Charlotte Stubben

Ditlev Engel has no plan to step down after the Annual General Meeting yesterday.

"I have no other plan than staying as CEO," Engel told Reuters after the annual general meeting of shareholders in the city of Aarhus.

"I am the right one to execute the new strategy for Vestas in the coming years," Engel said.

Engel also said that Vestas would be able to manufacture the turbines in its record-high orderbook for 2013.

Three new members
At the Annual General Meeting three new members were elected for the Board of Directors.

Two other new members were elected to the Board of Directors of Vestas Wind Systems A/S: Mr Lars Olof Josefsson was appointed Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors and Mrs Eija Pitkänen was elected member of the Board of Directors.
