From a media release issued by The New North:

NEW NORTH, August 19, 2008 – Broadwind Energy on Tuesday announced that Manitowoc-based Tower Tech Systems has signed a contract to manufacture wind tower components for Nordex USA, one of the world’s leading providers of onshore wind turbines.

Broadwind also announced that Badger Transport, based in Clintonville, signed a contract to deliver the components to Texas for Nordex.

“The wind energy industry is a targeted industry cluster of the New North, and over the past year, we’ve seen a great deal of growth in this field for companies in the region,” said Jerry Murphy, Executive Director of the New North, Inc.

“Today’s announcement is just more good news for Northeast Wisconsin’s developing wind energy industry.”

Tower Tech expects to supply the four-section towers to in early 2009, which will be used to support 2500 kW turbines developed by Nordex. The order is the largest ever for Nordex in the United States,
according to Broadwind.

“The New North’s efforts to promote the region’s wind energy assets are clearly paying off, following our organization’s trip to the American Wind Energy Association WINDPOWER Conference back in June,” Murphy said. “With great companies like Tower Tech and Badger Transport, a highly-skilled workforce, and great technical schools, we’re looking forward to the continued success of this industry throughout the region.”

Both Tower Tech and Badger Transport are subsidiaries of Naperville, IL-based Broadwind Energy, Inc.
