LM Glasfiber officially celebrated the grand opening of its new wind turbine blade factory in Urumqi in the Xinjiang province, China.
It is LM Glasfiber's second blade manufacturing facility in China and the 10th worldwide. In its first phase the new factory is expected to produce approximately 500 blades per year and create employment for approximately 200 people. A further expansion is slated for 2008. The factory is based on LM Glasfiber's modular layout principles making easy and fast capacity expansion possible in order to follow the rapid growth of the Chinese wind market. The first blades from the new factory will be supplied to Goldwind turbines in the Da Ban Cheng wind park in Xinjiang.
