News International-French

19 Feb 2014

TPI Composites announced that it has signed a long-term agreement with Gamesa to supply blades for its G114 wind turbine from TPI’s factory in Juarez, Mexico.

Gamesa will use these blades to cost-effectively serve wind projects in the U.S. and Mexico as well as for export to other emerging regional markets.

Gamesa is an international wind leader with very strong ties to the U.S. and Mexican markets. Recent strong U.S. orders validate the new G114-2.0MW model as one of the most efficient turbines in the market at medium and low wind speeds.

Borja Negro, CEO, Gamesa North America says, “We are excited to be partnering with TPI to provide world-class wind blades to our regional target markets. TPI’s quality and process rigor, as well as its strong record of delivering many thousands of reliable blades, make TPI an excellent partner for Gamesa.”

TPI’s Juarez factory was formerly operated as a joint venture under the name of VienTek and is now 100% owned by TPI and serving multiple customers. TPI is in the process of rehiring about 600 former VienTek employees to put their skills and blade manufacturing knowledge back to work.
