TPI Composites, Inc, which makes composite wind blades, has signed a multiyear supply agreement with Vestas Wind Systems A/S to provide blades from two manufacturing lines for the V136 wind turbine for markets in Central and South America.

The blades will be produced at a new 48,000 m2 facility in Matamoros, Mexico, which is scheduled to open for production in the first half of 2018.

‘We are excited that Vestas has chosen to partner with TPI on blade production again and in a third geography to serve the growing Latin American wind market,’ said Steve Lockard, president and CEO of TPI Composites.
