CONSTRUCTION PLANT IN SPAIN

Aerpac Holding, a Dutch manufacturer of blades for wind turbine rotors, is setting up a joint venture construction plant in Spain with Industrias Mecanicas de Tudela (Inmetusa). The plant will manufacture blades of glass reinforced epoxy or polyester. The joint venture, named Aertusa can produce blades from 28 to 45 meters. Inmetusa is not wholly unknown to Aerpac. The blade division of huge Dutch engineering company, Stork, where the founders of Aerpac were employed, once worked together with the Spanish company. According to Aerpac's Ernst Siahaya, the reason for the joint venture is to be closer to a promising market in southern Europe. Blades from Spain, though, will also be exported elsewhere, such as India and further east. Despite the currency exchange rate advantages, Aerpac has no plans to move its facilities to Spain, Siahaya says.
