U.S.-based Northstar Endeavors LLC, dba Northstar Wind, has granted Alphatec Nordeste the exclusive license to design, manufacture, construct and sell wind towers using Northstar's intellectual property (IP) in Brazil.

Northstar says its Northstar Modular Tower (NMT) design provides the megawatt wind industry a solution to build taller towers at heights up to 140 meters, and Alphatec will be expanding its energy-related businesses by developing towers utilizing Northstar's IP. Alphatec is also building a dedicated manufacturing facility for the towers and tower components, which is scheduled to come online in 2016.

“This agreement launches our global initiative of licensing our technology for our modular tower solution,” says Jeff Willis, president of Northstar. “We could not be more excited about teaming up with Alphatec and their team to help them to become a major tower supplier in the Brazilian market.”
