NAW Staff, Friday 18 January 2008 - 01:00:00

Spain-based Acciona has officially opened its wind turbine generator production facility in West Branch, Iowa. The facility, which is Acciona's first manufacturing facility in the U.S., was constructed in seven months.

Acciona says the new facility will provide more than 100 new jobs and will produce 200 wind turbines in 2008, and it plans to increase capacity to 400 turbines per year in the future. Wind turbines manufactured at the facility will supply Acciona Energy wind farms throughout North America and will use proprietary technology from Acciona's wind turbine manufacturing subsidiary, Acciona Windpower, to produce its AWP 1.5-77 models.
