Energy Maintenance Service LLC (EMS), a Broadwind Energy Inc. company, has established a comprehensive wind energy maintenance and service center in Abilene, Texas.

The Abilene center will be a regional operations and maintenance and training center. It will be located in a 300,000 square-foot building in northwest Abilene.

The facility will feature cranes and production test benches that will allow EMS to provide complete repair and retrofitting of turbines and re-manufacturing of other major components.

"EMS is making an additional commitment to the industry by establishing this center, which will support the growing wind industry in Texas and throughout the South," says J. Cameron Drecoll, Broadwind’s CEO. "This new center also advances Broadwind Energy's overall strategy to fill the gaps in the North American supply chain for energy development and generation."

Construction will be completed in phases, and the company expects the center to be fully operational within 12 months.
