Siemens Windpower, Nordex, Acciona Windpower, Clipper Windpower to Outline Robust Supplier Qualification Processes for US Wind Turbine Suppliers

Leading US wind turbine manufacturers including Siemens Windpower, Nordex USA, Acciona Windpower North America and Clipper Windpower will outline what new suppliers need to do to if they are to secure orders for wind turbine component at innovative conference.

In Chicago, on April 12-13th 2010, these leading wind turbine companies will be joining over 200 wind energy professionals at the US Wind Turbine Supply Chain conference to share their development strategies and robust requirements for new suppliers.

As wind turbine manufacturers are looking to localize their wind component supply chains to avoid having to source from European suppliers and pay Euro prices, this conference will give attendees exclusive insight into what their potential buyers are looking for.

Many industrial manufacturing firms are keen to manufacture components for the wind power industry, especially after slumps in orders from automotive manufacturers in 2008 and 2009.

The wind energy industry continues to grow. But manufacturing wind turbine components requires strict technical competence and machining specifications.

Farhan A Mirza, Director of Supplier Development at Clipper Windpower is delighted to join the speaker line up at this strategic knowledge sharing conference. He notes that “this is a unique opportunity to help influence a paradigm shift towards open book costing with suppliers to develop mutual growth and benefit”.

Mirza will be joined by over 20 other leading wind turbine manufacturers, tier one suppliers, logistics firms, government agencies, wind energy analysts and experts at the US Wind Turbine Supply Chain conference in Chicago this April 12-13th.
