China's leading wind energy company is working with a US turbine towers firm to develop a wind farm in Montana. China's Goldwind has selected Broadwind Energy to supply 14 wind turbine towers for its Musselshell project in Shawmut, Montana in the US, set for installation during the second half of 2012.

"We have worked with Broadwind on some of our most visible projects in the Americas including the 109.5 MW Shady Oaks wind farm," said Tim Rosenzweig, chief executive officer of Goldwind USA. "Broadwind has been an integral part of our efforts to build a domestic supply chain that would ensure the delivery of high-quality projects for our customers and we are pleased to work with its team once again."

With more than 1,200 towers produced to date, Broadwind is a leading US producer of multi-megawatt wind turbine towers. The first in the U.S. to manufacture 100m towers, Broadwind applies existing talent to a new American challenge, tapping deep roots in steel fabrication to create the tall steel towers that enable turbines to capture maximum wind energy.

"We are delighted to extend our relationship with Goldwind through another project," said Peter C. Duprey, president and chief executive officer of Broadwind Energy. "We look forward to future opportunities to support Goldwind's growth as we work together building quality wind towers and creating local jobs to support America's need for cleaner energy solutions."
