Vestas has signed multi-year framework agreement with long-time partner TPI Composites Inc. (TPI), a supplier of wind turbine blades and services, to strengthen its supply chain network for current and future wind turbine blades.

TPI and Vestas work closely together on 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. TPI will continue supply of blades from its existing production footprint, while optimising the production setup in current facilities, and evaluate new locations for possible future growth.


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.


“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”,
said Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of Vestas.


“We are proud of our long and successful partnership with Vestas and are pleased that Vestas has chosen to further expand its relationship with TPI. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the supply of current and future blade models, blade design, and other services globally,”
added Bill Siwek, CEO, TPI Composites Inc.
