Two-bladed wind turbines to be manufactured in Texas

New Zealand-based Windflow Technology, a manufacturer of two-blade turbines, and General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies have agreed to jointly develop, manufacture and sell Windflow 500-kW lightweight, two-bladed wind turbines. General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies, a worldwide supplier of satellite and wireless communication equipment, will manufacture and sell turbines to provide backup electricity supplies to customers in North and South America, Africa, U.S. territories and global military bases.

The 10-year agreement provides co-funding for development of a 60-Hz version of the existing high wind speed (Class 1A) turbine, and a 500-kW version optimized for North American locations with lower wind speeds (Class 2A) also found in many other world locations.

The two-bladed wind turbines will be manufactured at facilities in Longview and Kilgore, Texas.
