Vestas has signed a multi-year framework agreement with long-time partner TPI Composites Inc. (TPI), one of the leading supplier of wind turbine blades and services. “The continued and expanded partnership highlights how we are increasingly collaborating with partners, and how we continue to evolve and re-shape the industry together. We have been working together with TPI since 2014 and during that time, they have become one of our most trusted and strategic blade partners. With this agreement, we are happy to continue this journey, leveraging their global footprint and providing scalable, high-quality, and sustainable supply together”, says Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of Vestas.
TPI and Vestas work closely together on global manufacturing and supply chain operations, based on Vestas’ specifications and requirements, and TPI is currently supplying a range of blade variants to Vestas’ 2 and 4 MW platforms as well as the EnVentus platform. Vestas and TPI are equally investigating further collaboration possibilities for the V163-4.5 MW and V236-15.0 MW turbines and assessing the optimal manufacturing and production location setup for these new blades.
