Irvine, Calif.-headquartered Composite Technology Corp. (CTC), a provider of renewable energy products, and Round Rock, Texas-based TECO-Westinghouse Motor Co., a manufacturer of electric motors and generators, have signed a strategic alliance agreement for the development, research and manufacturing of wind turbines in Texas.

TECO-Westinghouse, in partnership with CTC, will use its manufacturing and supply chain experience to produce nacelles and hubs to manufacture the DeWind D8.2 turbine for CTC for distribution to the North American market. The DeWind D8.2 will be assembled at the ISO 9000 certified TECO-Westinghouse factory in Round Rock.

"This agreement is expected to lead to a full, turnkey manufacturing relationship that will allow our wind turbine subsidiary, DeWind Inc., to execute substantial turbine orders for our advanced DeWind D8.2 that we are finalizing," says Benton Wilcoxon, CTC's chairman and chief executive officer.

The companies plan on advancing the DeWind turbines to improve efficiency and reliability in the future.
