In addition to existing rotor blade production facilities in different regions, we can now also manufacture our Rotor Blades for North and Latin America, significantly increasing our competitiveness, “said José Luis Blanco, Executive Director of Grupo Nordex.
The plant will produce a number of rotor blades equivalent to the production of 1 GW per year and will allow its supply in local and global markets. The production will also be extended to the rotor blades for the large turbines of the AW and Delta4000 platforms.
