Cicero, Ill.-based Broadwind Energy Inc. has announced a $34 million order for towers from an unnamed U.S. wind turbine manufacturer. Broadwind will produce these towers in its Abilene, Texas, facility, and delivery is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter and extend into 2014.

"This order starts to fill the capacity in our Abilene facility into 2014," comments Peter Duprey, Broadwind Energy's president and CEO. "This provides our tower business with better visibility further into the future. We continue to be pleased with the demand for domestically produced wind towers in the United States."
