Utility Scale Blades for World Market
Energetx Composites is building 45.3-meter blades under a 30-month contract with an unnamed wind turbine original equipment manufacturer. With this contract in hand, the Holland, Michigan company is investing $5 million in new machinery and hiring 50-60 new employees. In early June the company exported 11 molds it manufactured to Minano, Spain to be used by Aeroblade S.A. to produce the same blade in Europe. This shipment was made out of the Port of Muskegon to the Port of Bilbao in Spain. Assisting in the international shipment were Rockford Berge, Great Lakes Heavy Haul, and Gelock Heavy Movers.
