TPI Composites, a U.S.-based wind turbine blade manufacturer, has launched its second blade plant in China. In addition, the company has signed a multiyear supply agreement with Acciona Windpower SA to provide wind blades from the new Dafeng factory.

Acciona intends to export these blades for projects around the world, including in North America. TPI says it will also manufacture high-precision molds and assembly systems to produce Acciona's blades at TPI's recently announced advanced composite tooling facility in Taicang, China.

“TPI is excited to continue to support new customers on a global basis, and this agreement with Acciona validates the strength and value of TPI’s dedicated supplier model,” says Steve Lockard, president and CEO of TPI Composites.

Jose Luis Blanco, CEO of Acciona Windpower SA, adds, “We are very pleased to be partnering with TPI for the supply of AW116/125 wind blades for worldwide use. Acciona’s track record of reliability and TPI’s experience as an independent wind blade manufacturing partner will serve our needs well for years to come.”
