Cicero, Ill.-based Broadwind Energy Inc. has announced a $14 million order for towers from an unnamed U.S. wind turbine manufacturer. Broadwind will produce the towers in its Abilene, Texas, facility, with delivery scheduled for the second half of this year.

"Since the final months of 2012, we have announced $127 million in tower orders, and we are now pleased to report that our Abilene, Texas, plant is near capacity for 2013," says Peter C. Duprey, president and CEO of Broadwind Energy. "We’ve seen a significant improvement in activity, and we are quoting orders for 2014 delivery as the wind energy industry recovers from the downturn at the end of 2012.”
