Owens Corning – one of the main suppliers of glass-fibre textiles for turbine blades, nacelle bodies and spinners in Brazil – is taking steps to replace declining wind orders with contracts from other sectors, reflecting the nerves in the country's once vibrant wind supply chain.

“We had invested constantly in past years, including in equipment, to supply the wind sector and now we are planning to sell glass fibre to other sectors,” Mario Bozzo, the country manager of Owens Corning’s Brazil subsidiary tells Recharge.
