Vestas and TPI extend partnership

Vestas says that it has expanded its partnership with long term collaborator TPI Composites.

TPI current supplies a range of wind blades to Vestas and both now plan to improve production setup and investigate building new plants where there is growing market demand.

The companies will initially focus on production of wind blades for Vestas’ V163-4.5 MW and V236-15.0 MW turbines, they say.

“Sharing manufacturing operations across the renewables industry is more relevant than ever to ensure sites are not sitting idle and creates a flexible, scalable, and efficient supply chain,” a press release said.

“We have been working together with TPI since 2014 and during that time, they have become one of our most trusted and strategic blade partners,” added Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, Vestas COO.
