LM Glasfiber opens US plant

Grand Forks in North Dakota is to be home to the first US manufacturing facility of Danish wind turbine blade maker LM Glasfiber. The plant, opening next month, will produce 23.5 metre and 29 metre fibreglass blades intended for sites in North America. LM also plans to use the plant to make blades for China and South America as those markets develop, says the company's Craig Hoiseth. The Grand Forks plant will employ at least 130 people. The deal was aided by Phoenix Industries, a previous competitor to LM that has stopped producing wind turbine blades. Hoiseth says Phoenix might end up as a supplier to the LM plant, but no deal between the companies has been made yet. LM Glasfiber has other plants operating in Denmark, Germany, Spain and India.
