Today, Energy Composites Corporation announced that it has launched its comprehensive WindFiberâ„¢ composites-in-wind-energy program. Sam Fairchild, ECC’s CEO, stated, “Our comprehensive strategy platform — which we have named WindFiberâ„¢ — brings us full square into delivering value across all three channels: manufacturing the advanced composite structures for wind energy systems; servicing the composite components of wind energy systems as a composites Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) contractor to integrators and wind farm operators; and supplying composites-related raw materials and material and technology innovations to the wind energy sector.”

He added, “We believe that composites play an increasingly important role in driving financial success to wind farm development, and our integrated WindFiber™ approach will accelerate greater and more innovative use of composites in wind energy systems throughout North America. With WindFiber™, we are upping the game.”

Jamie Mancl, ECC’s founder and President, commented, “WindFiber™ includes our step-by-step rollout of our manufacturing program for blades, nacelles, nose cones, rotor components and, eventually, towers, including the construction of our new 350,000 square foot WindFiber™ blade manufacturing facility in Wisconsin Rapids. It includes the introduction of our growing portfolio of composite-related material, manufacturing and technology innovations that reduce the installed and life-cycle costs of wind energy systems, make them significantly more efficient, extend their useful life, and reduce their impact on the environment.”

Mancl continued, “WindFiber™ also covers the expansion of our nationwide 24/7 Field Services Division to include MRO services on wind blades, housings, and other composite components, where we can also deploy many of our advancements. Finally, WindFiber™ enables us to become a significant supplier of advanced raw materials and technologies to the wind energy sector as a whole, helping to drive down the cost and improve the performance of new and existing wind farms.”

Mary Jo Carson, Mayor of Wisconsin Rapids, reaffirmed her support by stating, “The City of Wisconsin Rapids is very pleased with this news. We know that this company will be a strong part of the future of our community.”
