The Kansas Department of Commerce will host the second Kansas Wind Supply Chain Workshop Jan. 14 in Wichita, Kan.
The workshop will provide manufacturers information about the supply-chain needs of the wind energy industry. Topics include the basics of wind energy systems, quality standards required by original equipment manufacturers, challenges involved in transitioning to the wind energy supply chain and overall growth trends in the wind industry.
The workshop is open to all Kansas manufacturers interested in entering the wind supply chain, including those who operate foundries, forges, machine shops or fabricating plants, or for those who operate factories that produce power electronics, control systems, hydraulics, fasteners, brakes, blades and nacelles.
