Nordic Windpower, a California-based wind turbine manufacturer, has launched its global business in North America. The company says its Nordic N1000 turbine, which will be available in 2008, is the result of a 30-year, $75 million investment in research and development by the Swedish government and European Union.

"Nordic's innovation, a two-bladed, flexible design, dissipates the force of turbulent wind, preventing the progressive stress that can start with blade-rocking and end in gearbox failure," says Steve Taber, chief executive officer of Nordic Windpower.

Nordic will build a manufacturing plant for its wind turbines in the U.S.
