Composite Technology Corp. (CTC) and TECO-Westinghouse Motor Co. (TWMC) have executed an expanded commercial manufacturing agreement between the two companies.

The definitive agreement signed with CTC's DeWind subsidiary extends the manufacturing relationship between CTC and TWMC for 10 years and sets the guidelines for production, supply-chain management and commercial terms or turnkey manufacturing of DeWind turbines. CTC and TWMC signed a strategic alliance agreement in November 2006 that defined the intentions of the companies in the areas of manufacture, research and development, and future service and maintenance activities within North America.

"The turnkey manufacturing agreement provides stability and security for DeWind customers,” says Marvin Sepe, president of DeWind and chief operating officer of CTC. “With long-term manufacturing established, including supply-chain management by TWMC, DeWind can proceed with extended turbine supply contracts contemplated with utilities and developers around the world.”

The agreement covers the manufacture of DeWind D8.2 and D8.0 2 MW turbines as well as advanced turbines under development.

"This important agreement reinforces the commitment that CTC and TWMC have made to the wind turbine market and specifically to the manufacturing of utility-scale wind turbines in Texas," states Dr. H. C. Meng, president of TWMC. The manufacturing line is established in the TWMC facility located in Round Rock, Texas, and is currently designed for a capacity of 400 turbines per year. The line can be expanded as needed to meet market demand, the company adds.
