Nordex, Carbon Rotec extend wind turbine partnership

Nordex announced it will extend its partnership with Carbon Rotec in a business venture to improve turbine development for wind power

Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex announced it will extend its partnership with Carbon Rotec in a business venture to improve wind turbine development. Nordex and Carbon Rotec, which are both based in Germany, plan to produce Nordex's NR50 and NR65.5 rotor blades. As part of Nordex's production strategy, the company expects Carbon Rotec will start  making these rotor blades in 2015 in order to meet growing demand for wind power turbines. 

"The quality of the rotor blades we use is crucial for the yield of our customers' wind farms," Bernd Treiber, head of the Nordex SE Blade Centre, said in a statement. "This is why we are continuing the successful partnership with Carbon Rotec. This association has enabled us to build technically sophisticated rotor blades with carbon fibre structures."

The move by Nordex is part of a larger investment plan worth €50 million (US$63 million) to expand its international production. 

"We are delighted to be able to further intensify the existing partnership with Nordex and see this as confirmation of our performance to date, especially [in] regard to delivery deadlines and product quality," William Tang, managing director of Carbon Rotec GmbH & Co. KG, said in the statement.
