TPI Composites has signed a multi-year supply agreement with Senvion to provide wind turbine blades from two manufacturing lines for wind markets including Asia, Australia and South America.
The blades will be produced at TPI’s facility in Taicang Port, Jiangsu province, China, with production planned to commence in the first quarter of 2018.
The blades will be manufactured using proprietary RodPack technology, a material system that when used in the main girder, is said to enable optimised blade design as well as faster and higher quality blade production. Senvion purchased the RodPack technology in 2015 and has designed it into several blade models. As part of this agreement, TPI will establish high volume, high quality, low cost supply of RodPack from its operations in China.
“We are pleased to add Senvion as a key customer and that Senvion has chosen TPI as its wind blade outsource and technology partner for the Asian, Australian and South American markets,” says Steve Lockard, President and CEO of TPI Composites. “TPI will support Senvion’s technology advancements by producing RodPack material in a world-class manner.”
“We have chosen TPI due to its strong quality track-record, cost competitiveness, global footprint and ability to support Senvion’s drive for technology leadership,” states Christian Roth, COO of Senvion.
