A new plant with the capacity for two blade production lines will be built near Toledo, Brazil.

One line will be dedicated to producing blades for the new 900 kW direct drive turbine that FEEL will start delivering to the Brazil market in 2013.

"With the pull from the new FEEL turbine and with the technology and global network of GBT we are in the perfect position to deliver technically advanced blades," says Arthur Schuler da Igreja, Managing Director of GBTB.

"Capacity will be available to serve other parties blades needs as well.”

Blade production is scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2013.
