Ingeteam Reinforces U.S. Presence

416

Ingeteam will invest in the implementation of a combined production center in the United States. The company’s activity will focus primarily on the energy sector, specializing in the manufacture of wind power generators and converters, as well as solar photovoltaic converters, to meet the needs of the North American market. Ingeteam already has an office in Santa Clara, California, specializing in the sale of solar photovoltaic inverters. Likewise, another of the new affiliate’s objectives is the manufacture of motors, generators, and converters for other markets in which the company is active.

Ingeteam currently has a location in Mequon, Wisconsin, carrying out wind turbine operation and maintenance activities. Through this activity it manages more than 2,200 MW distributed over 60 wind farms all over the world. It should be stressed that Ingeteam’s wind power systems currently enjoy a market share between 12 and 15 percent. This share will increase in the coming years since the new factory is going to make possible the production of equipment for the equivalent of 7,500 MW each year, meeting the needs of its customers in this country. Several ranges of converter/generator products will be manufactured in the facilities, covering ranges from 1.5 to 5 MW of power for wind usage. In the medium term it is planned to endow the plant with the capacity to perform joint testing of complete equipment.

Ingeteam is a business group specializing in electrical engineering and the development of electronic technology that works in the energy, industry, marine, and railway traction sectors with the brands Ingeteam, Indar and Pine. It is made up of 28 companies spanning four continents—Asia, Europe, North America, and South America—and employing more than 3,500 people.
