The center will serve as the southern operations base for our wind turbine blade repair business with wind farm installations in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico.

LM Wind Power Service & Logistics is part of the LM Wind Power Group which comprises also LM Wind Power Blades (former LM Glasfiber).

The newly created LM Wind Power Service & Logistics business offers inspection, repair, overhaul, preventive maintenance as well as blade logistics covering the full spectrum of service to wind turbine owners anywhere in the world.

VP, Service Americas, Robert Burger says: "The new service center in Abilene, Texas is one of LM Wind Power's 6 fully staffed North American service centers. More than 90% of the installed base of North American wind turbines is within less than 8 hours' drive for our skilled technicians from these 6 locations. This enables us to provide our customers with shorter response times and reduced mobilization fees for service calls."
