LM Glasfiber and GE Energy have signed a contract for the delivery of blades for the eight projects totalling 990MW that GE Energy plans to build in Quebec, Canada, from 2006 to 2012. In addition, the parties have agreed on the supply of blades for a further 1,400MW of capacity for the North American market over the next ten years. As a result of the agreement, LM Glasfiber has decided to build a blade factory in Gaspé in Quebec. The factory will have an annual production capacity of approximately 240MW and will employ between 100 and 120 people. The factory is expected to be operational in January 2006. Combined with the US facility in North Dakota, the new factory will give LM Glasfiber an annual blade production capacity of more than 900MW in North America.
