TPI Composites (TPI) has signed a multi-year supply agreement with Vestas Wind Systems to provide blades from two manufacturing lines (with option to add more lines) for the Vestas V136 wind turbine for markets in Central and South America.

The blades will be produced at a new facility in Matamoros, Mexico, which is scheduled to open for production in the first half of 2018. According to TPI, its new manufacturing hub will be able to reliably and cost effectively serve wind markets in Mexico, Central and South America via land, rail and by water from the port of Brownsville, Texas, US. The facility, located on a 13-hectare site, will initially be 48,000 m2 with the ability to expand and serve multiple customers.

“We are excited that Vestas has chosen to partner with TPI on blade production again and in a third geography to serve the growing Latin American wind market,” says Steve Lockard, President and CEO of TPI Composites.

TPI has produced wind blades in Mexico since 2002, and is currently producing blades in three facilities in Ciudad Juarez.
