German Chancellor Angela Merkel recently visited Nordex's rotor blade production plant in Rostock, Germany, as part of an energy tour. The German government plans to announce new energy policy in September.
During the tour, Merkel will focus on ways in which the German wind industry can stay competitive.
‘We greatly welcome the fact that the chancellor wants to gain a first-hand impression of the progress being made in renewable energies,’ says Thomas Richterich, CEO of Nordex SE.
Nordex plans to construct a U.S. wind turbine plant in Jonesboro, Ark.
