Pennsylvania, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] According to a report from the Spanish Trade Commission, Gamesa has said that it plans to bring all its wind turbine blade manufacturing activity to the company’s plant in Cambria County, Pennsylvania by spring. According to Gamesa officers, the 300 worker facility is most suitable for manufacturing new generation blades that will substitute the model that is currently manufactured.
The company also said that most of the employees that would be losing jobs due to the closing down of other blade production lines will be put to work building other parts of the wind turbine structures. The expanded production line should mean additional people will eventually be hired.
Gamesa is one of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers, having installed more than 16,000 wind power megawatts in 20 countries. Together with other Spanish renewable energy developers, the company is highly committed to promoting renewable energy in the U.S. President Barak Obama visited a Gamesa Pennsylvania plant earlier this year.
