LM Wind Power inaugurates its second wind turbine blade plant in India at Vadodara, Gujarat

    LM Wind Power announced April 20, 2016 the inauguration of its second Indian plant, located in Vadodara, Gujarat.

    Customers, business partners and local dignitaries joined in on the event which is a strong signal of the company’s growth in the important Indian market as well as a celebration of a highly efficient ramp up to production. The plant, which was announced in November last year, began producing wind turbine blades a full month ahead of schedule.

    LM Wind Power CEO, Marc de Jong, said: “It is a great pleasure to inaugurate this new addition to our global manufacturing operations, which will allow us to serve our growing customer base in India. With this new blade plant, we bring employment, advanced training and development of technical skills to Gujarat, while helping to build a clean renewable energy base in a fast growing economy. We expect to prosper here, as we have in Dabaspet, applying international standards in safety, quality and business conduct as well as becoming an active corporate citizen in the local community.

    The Vadodara plant represents an investment of EUR 25 million and will supply blades to wind projects in the northern part of India and beyond. The production focuses on blades up to 60 meters in length with room for expansion. It employs almost 400 people in the initial phase, primarily from the local area.

    LM Wind Power already established manufacturing in India in the early 1990s. It was the first international location outside its home country, Denmark. The company currently operates a highly efficient blade manufacturing facility in Dabaspet, Karnataka and a global technical centre for research, development and services in Bangalore. The Dabaspet plant has won several awards for its outstanding safety and sustainability performance. LM Wind Power has approximately 1400 employees in India.
