Danish wind turbine blade manufacturer LM Glasfiber has announced plans to build a blade factory in Dobespet in Bangalore, India. The new factory, the company's second facility in India, will produce wind turbine blades of at least 34 metres in length and is expected to become operational in H2 2006. LM Glasfiber is investing DKK 100 mn (USD 16 mn) in the project, which will create around 300 local jobs.

Søren Knudsen, sales and marketing director at LM Glasfiber comments: "With the investment in the new factory, we will considerably strengthen our customers' competitive position on the Indian market. There is strongly increasing demand for large wind turbines of 1.5-2 MW on the Indian market, and with the new facility we can offer our customers a large and local production capacity for the new generation of multi-MW blades". In India, LM Glasfiber supplies blades to Vestas Wind Systems, GE Energy, Suzlon and NEPC.

LM Glasfiber is the world's leading manufacturer of wind turbine blades. Globally, LM Glasfiber has supplied more than a third of the blades in operation today. The company has production facilities in Denmark, Spain, the US, India and China. LM Glasfiber is headquartered in Lunderskov, Denmark, and employs 2,500 people. The news was reported by financial daily newspaper Børsen.
