Northern Power Systems says it will open of a new office in the Boston area. The new office, located at 222 Third Street in Cambridge, Mass., will serve as a commercial and engineering center for its growing global wind business.
The company currently manufactures the Northwind 100 turbine, designed specifically for community wind applications such as schools, universities, businesses, commercial farms and municipalities.
Later this year, the company plans to launch a 2.2MW turbine into the utility-scale marketplace for wind farm applications.
Northern Power Systems has installed Northwind 100 community-scale turbines in fourteen U.S. states and four countries. In Massachusetts, Northern has five Northwind 100 turbines in operation at two schools, a commercial garden center, a convent and the Wood's Hole Research Center. In addition, multiple new projects are underway for 2010.
