The Nordex Group (Hamburg, Germany) announced February 12 that it plans to produce its own rotor blades in Mexico and is setting up a production facility in Matamoros, in the state of Tamaulipas.

Moving forward, rotor blades totalling more than 1GW capacity per year will be produced there for both the local and global markets. Production will be equally extended to rotor blades for the large turbines of both the AW and the Delta4000 platforms and is scheduled to start in spring 2019.

“With the plant in Matamoros, we are responding to the sharp rise in global demand for our products,” says José Luis Blanco, CEO of the Nordex Group. “In addition to the existing rotor blade production facilities in different regions, we can now also manufacture our rotor blades in the vicinity of the North and Latin American growth markets.”

The production hall is currently being equipped with modern production molds. At full capacity, the plant will create around 900 direct and indirect local jobs.
