Broadwind Energy, Inc. recently announced $14 million in new tower orders from a U.S. wind turbine manufacturer. Broadwind will produce these towers in its Manitowoc, Wisconsin and Abilene, Texas facilities.
Broadwind President and CEO Peter Duprey stated, “With these orders, nearly three quarters of our tower production capacity for 2015 is sold and we expect to fill the remaining capacity before year-end. We are in discussions with customers for additional commitments into 2016 and 2017 and look forward to a decision on the Production Tax Credit after the November elections. We remain confident about the demand for wind energy assets in the U.S.”
