TPI makes blades in China for GE

American company TPI Composites, a manufacturer of large-scale composite structures, has signed a long term blade supply agreement with GE Energy for projects in China. The blades will be produced in a new facility being established in Taicang, in east China's Jiangsu province. Employing 450 people at full capacity, the 17,650 square metre factory is expected to begin production in early 2008. The agreement also provides GE with a license to employ TPI's patented SCRIMP process technology, which it describes as a highly advanced form of vacuum infusion. It is not yet clear exactly how many blade sets TPI will supply to GE. While GE's Beijing office confirms the deal, it will not elaborate further.
