Alliance to Manufacture Wind Turbines in Texas

Composite Technology Corporation (CTC) and TECO-Westinghouse Motor Company signed an agreement to manufacture, research and develop further advances to the DeWind range of wind turbines, and to improve efficiency and reliability through service and maintenance activities within North America.

The proposed manufacturing agreement provides for TECO-Westinghouse to manufacture the DeWind D8.2 turbine for CTC for distribution to the North American market. “This agreement is expected to lead to a full, turnkey manufacturing relationship that will allow our wind turbine subsidiary, DeWind, Inc., to execute substantial turbine orders for our advanced DeWind D8.2 that we are finalizing,” said Benton Wilcoxon, Chairman and CEO of CTC. The Strategic Alliance Agreement provides for local manufacturing in Texas, the state that currently generates the largest amount of wind derived kilowatts. The DeWind D8.2 will be assembled at the ISO 9000 certified TECO-Westinghouse factory in Round Rock, Texas. “Texas is leading the nation in wind energy production, and the announcement by CTC and TECO-Westinghouse is further evidence of the private sector’s commitment to helping meet the growing energy needs of our state,” said Texas Gov. Rick Perry. “New wind energy infrastructure will not only diversify our energy production, it also will help clean up our air and help Texas surpass our renewable energy goals.”
