Goldwind appoints US CEO as part of Americas expansion

US: Chinese turbine manufacturer Goldwind has appointed First Wind vice-president and chief financial officer Tim Rosenzweig to be the CEO of Goldwind USA.

On announcing the appointment, Goldwind said Rosenzweig would be taking up the position with immediate effect. It said his brief would be to build the company's presence in both North and South America.

Rosenzweig was part of the launch team for UPC Wind, which later became First Wind. Prior to this he has been a vice-president at a private equity fund and a vice-president at GE Capital Services Group in Hong Kong.

Speaking about the appointment Goldwind CEO Wu Gang said: "He brings an impressive breadth of skills and depth of experience to our CEO position. His combination of skills and experience growing companies in the sector from the ground floor to function seamlessly in the local market will be invaluable to our efforts to build Goldwind into a premier business in the Americas."

Goldwind launched its US offshoot last year and plans to add manufacturing facilities in the country. Earlier this year it also became the first Chinese manufacturer to install its turbines on US soil.

The 1.5MW permanent-magnetic direct drive turbines (the 77/1500 type) were installed on the 'Uilk' wind farm project at Pipestone Town, Minnesota.
