NEG Micon A/S, the world's second largest producer of wind turbines, has bought its tower supplier, Alustål. In 1998, Alustål had sales of DKK 120 million (EUR 16.2 million). NEG Micon will consolidate its current steel works in Alustål's plant in Ringkøbing. The acquisition follows seven others by NEG Micon in the past year (Windpower Monthly, May 1999). A long time manufacturing facility in Grenå will close as a result of the consolidation.
