LM Glasfiber and Samsung team up in US wind market initiative  

2009.12.21
The Danish wind turbine blade manufacturer has signed a deal with Samsung to supply blades for Samsung’s new 2.5 MW wind turbine on the US market
Danish wind turbine blade manufacturer LM Glasfiber and Samsung Heavy Industries Co Ltd have signed a strategic cooperation agreement for the supply of blades for Samsung’s new 2.5 MW wind turbine on the US market. The news is announced on LM Glasfiber's website and in financial daily newspaper Børsen.
 
The agreement comprises a contract to supply at least 1,800 blades over the next five years. The blades will be delivered from LM Glasfiber’s facilities in the USA. The deal brings the Danish company, which is the world's leading independent manufacturer of wind turbine blades, into close contact with South Korean industrial giants now seeking to gain a slice of the global wind turbine market.
 
Executive vice president Mr. Han of Samsung Heavy Industries Wind Division says in the press release: “Samsung sees a large potential in the growing wind market. We have chosen LM Glasfiber as the supplier of blades for our new wind turbine because of their strong global presence in all major wind markets, their extensive R&D capabilities and long proven track record and we look forward to working with the leading blade supplier in this industry.”
 
Samsung Heavy Industries announced their entry into the wind market in 2008 with the launch of a 2.5 MW wind turbine in the US. The company is aiming to become the world’s seventh largest supplier of wind turbines with a market share of 10% by 2015. Samsung Heavy Industries also announced its entry into the offshore wind market.
 
LM Glasfiber has its North American regional office and a blade factory in Grand Forks, North Dakota and a blade factory in Little Rock, Arkansas.
