Broadwind Energy's wholly owned subsidiary, Tower Tech Systems Inc., has signed a framework agreement to supply wind turbine towers to a subsidiary of Gamesa Technology Corp. for its North American projects. The G87 78-meter, four-section wind towers will be fabricated in Manitowoc, Wis.

"This agreement is a testament to Tower Tech's continued execution of tower fabrication and delivery," says Emmanuel de la Pena, chief operating officer at Gamesa Corp. "We need strong suppliers like Tower Tech for our North American growing activities."

Broadwind Energy has also announced the appointment of David P. Reiland, CEO and president of Magnetek Inc., to its board of directors. Reiland will replace Raymond L. Brickner III, who recently announced his resignation.

Reiland became Magnetek's president and CEO in October 2006. He has held numerous high-level positions since joining the company in 1986, including executive vice president, chief financial officer, controller and vice president of finance.
