Naperville, Ill.-based Broadwind Energy Inc. has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Tower Tech Systems Inc., has signed a contract with Nordex USA Inc. to manufacture wind tower sections. Another Broadwind subsidiary, Badger Transport Inc., received a contract to deliver the sections to various Texas locations for Nordex.
The four-section towers will support N90 2.5 MW wind turbines. Tower Tech expects to supply the first Nordex sections in early 2009. The integrated order represents the first time Broadwind has included logistics coordination in its service package and is the first order for Tower Tech's new plant in Abilene, Texas.
‘This Texas project represents Nordex's second – and its largest – project along with its re-entry into the North American wind energy market,’ says Ralf Sigrist, CEO of Nordex USA. ‘We are pleased to be working with a leader like Broadwind, and we are confident in its ability to efficiently manufacture high quality, durable towers and ensure they're delivered on time.’
