Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S agreed to source blades for its V126 wind turbine from a recently announced factory in Izmir, Turkey, owned by TPI Composites Inc., SeeNews reported.

Under the fresh multi-year supply agreement, the United States–based blade manufacturer will be delivering components for Vestas’ customers in the region of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). TPI’s blade factory in Izmir is expected to start production in late 2016, Vestas said. The facility will be located on a 10 hectares site and initially be 30,000 square metres with the ability to expand. The company has been manufacturing blades in Turkey since 2012. Currently it is producing such turbine components there for General Electric and Nordex.

Vestas and TPI signed a similar deal in China a year earlier. In December 2014, they agreed for TPI to supply China-made blades for Vestas’ V110 machine. The American company is producing the components under that contract at its facility in Dafeng, Jiangsu province.
