Vestas says that its wind turbine towers will be manufactured by CS Wind in Ontario for future wind projects in the province. CS Wind has delivered more than 3,000 utility-scale towers globally from production facilities in Vietnam and China.
Essar Steel Algoma, located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, will provide the steel for the tower sections. Meanwhile, the towers will be made at CS Wind's new tower-fabrication facility in Windsor.Â
Steel plates will be rolled, formed, shaped and welded together, and then transported to wind energy projects in Ontario. The CS Wind factory in Ontario is expected to deliver its first tower to Vestas in November.
