Goldwind has partnered with Broadwind to produce its 85-meter wind turbine towers, and the installation is expected during the second half of 2011.

Broadwind will produce the wind turbine towers for Goldwind’s Shady Oaks project at its Manitowoc, Wisconsin facility.

Goldwind CEO Tim Rosenzweig said that while proximity to the project and an ability to generate opportunity for the local wind industry certainly played a role in the company’s decision, experience, high quality and a proven track record of success were key factors in selecting Broadwind as tower partner for the Shady Oaks project.

US based Broadwind is a producer of multi-megawatt wind turbine towers.
