LM Wind Power builds French blade factory

LM Wind Power builds French blade factory

23-03-2017 16:00:00


LM Wind Power has started construction on its new offshore wind turbine blade manufacturing facility in Cherbourg in France. The first stone for the new factory, which marks the official start of construction will be set today, March 23, according to information from the French Ministry of Environment, Energy and sea.

The factory will serve all customers in the global offshore turbine market. The decision to build the new manufacturing facility has been greatly facilitated by the signing of a supply agreement with GE on the wings for the Haliade offshore wind project.

The world's longest wind turbine blade at 88,4 meters, designed for Adwens 8MW offshore turbine will also be produced in Cherbourg according to the company.

LM Wind Power is taken over by GE, that delivers turbine blades to the competitor Adwens Halliade project. Nevertheless, the GE acquisition was recently approved by the European Commission, which found that the transaction would not result in a significant reduction compared to the competition in the EU internal market.

Production at the new facility is expected to start from June 2018. This was announced by the company in February, when the building of the blade factory was announced.
