LM Wind Power announces second blade factory in India

    LM Wind Power, the world’s largest independent supplier of blades for wind turbines, announced today that it is setting up a new blade manufacturing plant in Vadodara, Gujarat in the Midwestern part of India. Start of operations is scheduled for March, 2016.

    The Vadodara plant is being commissioned in direct response to increased domestic demand and will supply blades to wind projects in the northern part of India and beyond. The production will focus on blades up to 60 meters with room for expansion, and will employ more than 300 people in the initial phase, primarily from the local area.

    “LM Wind Power and its customers have been pioneers in helping to develop the Indian wind industry for more than 20 years, continuously introducing new technology and state of the art manufacturing methods. The Vadodara plant is a further commitment to this important market and directly supporting a customer’s ambitious growth plans in India. We look forward to operating in Gujarat, helping to provide clean, affordable energy to Indian consumers and further supporting the sustainable development of the local economy,” said LM Wind Power’s Chief Executive Officer, Marc de Jong.

    The site in Vadodara, Gujarat is located in the Halol industrial area which provides easy access to a strong base of skilled employees. The proximity to the ports in Mumbai and Kandla further supports the viability of the site which is currently being remodeled and equipped to start operations next year.

    LM Wind Power has been present in the southern part of India since 1993, and currently operates a state of the art blade manufacturing facility in Dobaspet and a research and development office in Bangalore. The Dobaspet plant has won several awards for its outstanding safety and sustainability performance.
