Prospective Canadian wind turbine producer AAER Inc has reached an agreement with Germany's EUROS GmbH allowing the Quebec firm to manufacture blades using EUROS technical specifications. "This agreement completes our technology portfolio and will allow us to start production and assemble our first wind turbine in 2008 as planned," says AAER CEO Dave Gagnon. He says the agreement will give the company greater control over its supply chain, which is "increasingly becoming a challenge in our industry." AAER holds turbine technology licensing agreements with Germany's Fuhrländer AG and Austrian Windtec, a subsidiary of American Superconductor Corporation. It has leased factory space in the city of Bromont, about 75 kilometres east of Montreal, and expects to produce its first turbine by the end of August.
