Siemens Selects Broadwind To Supply Towers For Iowa Wind Project

Siemens has selected Broadwind Energy to supply 36 locally manufactured towers for the expansion of the MidAmerican Energy wind project in Iowa and has signed an option for an additional 25 towers.

Kevin Hazel, VP of Supply Chain Management for Siemens Energy’s Wind Power Americas business stated, “Broadwind’s capacity and location, coupled with extensive experience fabricating taller and heavier towers, made them an ideal partner for Siemens in Iowa.”

Heavy Tower Experience

With more than 1,000 towers manufactured to date, Broadwind is a leading U.S. producer of multi-megawatt wind turbine towers and one of the first U.S. companies to produce 100-meter towers. Broadwind applies existing welding talent to help solve the new American challenge for domestic energy, tapping deep roots in steel fabrication to create the tall steel towers that enable turbines to capture maximum wind energy. Broadwind will produce the wind towers for Siemens in its Manitowoc, Wisconsin facility.

“We are pleased that Siemens has selected Broadwind to supply towers for this project, which confirms our original strategy of focusing on the taller and heavier multi-megawatt towers,” said Paul Smith, president of Broadwind Towers. “This is our first tower order with Siemens and fits well with our strategy of diversifying our customer base.”

Broadwind expects to deliver these towers to Siemens during the second and third quarters of 2012.
