Broadwind gets $34m tower deal

Wind tower manufacturer Broadwind has secured $34m in new orders from an unnamed US turbine group.

Illinois-based Broadwind said the towers will be made at its Manitowoc, Wisconsin plant.

CEO Peter Duprey said: "With these orders, approximately two-thirds of our tower production capacity for 2015 is sold.

“We are currently in late stage discussions to fill the remaining 2015 tower capacity and have started discussions for additional commitments into 2016 and beyond.”
