TPI Composites, Inc., the largest U.S.-based independent manufacturer of composite wind blades, announced that it has extended and expanded its long-term agreement with Nordex to continue to supply wind blades from its existing Izmir, Turkey manufacturing facility through 2020.
Annual volume is also being increased as a result of TPI’s improvements in cycle time and productivity. TPI’s manufacturing capacity in Turkey for Nordex is used to supply projects in Turkey, as well as for export to other locations in the greater European region, Africa, and the Middle East.
“We are pleased to extend and expand our agreement with Nordex confirming our continued strong relationship and ongoing productivity gains,” said Steve Lockard, TPI’s President and CEO.
TPI has been operating in Turkey since 2012 and has been building wind blades for Nordex since 2013.
“We look forward to continuing the supply of high-quality, cost-competitive wind blades and making further improvements in our operations,” added Senol Bircan, Vice President, EMEA.
