Newly created Wind Energy Services Co. (WES), a subsidiary of Molded Fiber Glass Cos., has launched fiberglass reinforced plastic wind energy service and repair operations in Independence, Kan., and Sweetwater, Texas, respectively.

Created in response to the industry's historic growth trend and the ensuing demand for responsive on-site engineering expertise to assess and repair on-tower damages, WES' wind energy composite expertise runs the gamut of blades, nacelles, spinners and associated structural and surface components, according to the company.

"The Midwest is a sweet spot for wind energy and with Kansas' growth in wind turbines, it's key to decrease the logistical costs of blade and nacelle repair," says Richard Morrison, CEO of Molded Fiber Glass. "In fact, it costs approximately $10 to $15 per mile to move these huge blades. Therefore, WES' goal is to provide essential on-site repair to cultivate a culture of manageable repair in response to the growth the market continues to experience."
