Siemens Canada Ltd. announced a milestone earlier this month after it manufactured its thousandth wind turbine blade at its plant in Tillsonburg, southeast of London, Ontario.
“We are very proud and excited to be celebrating the completion of our 1000th blade,” said Wind Power Renewables Division Head Jacob Andersen. “In 2014, Siemens reached a 10-gigawatt installation milestone in the Americas, which reaffirms our commitment to renewable energy, the competitiveness of wind power, and continuous innovation.”
The Tillsonburg plant has been producing 49- and 55-metre wind turbine blades since 2010. (h/t to Clean Energy Review for pointing us to this story)
