The supplier of blades for wind turbines announces that it is setting up a blade manufacturing plant in Vadodara, Gujarat in the Midwestern part of India. Start of operations is scheduled for March, 2016.

The Vadodara plant is being commissioned in direct response to increased domestic demand and will supply blades to wind projects in the northern part of India and beyond. The production will focus on blades up to 60 meters with room for expansion, and will employ more than 300 people in the initial phase, primarily from the local area.

The site in Vadodara, Gujarat is located in the Halol industrial area which provides easy access to a strong base of skilled employees. The proximity to the ports in Mumbai and Kandla further supports the viability of the site which is currently being remodeled and equipped to start operations next year.

LM Wind Power has been present in the southern part of India since 1993, and currently operates a state of the art blade manufacturing facility in Dobaspet and a research and development office in Bangalore. The Dobaspet plant has won several awards for its outstanding safety and sustainability performance.
