Ingeteam to open a renewable energy components plant in Milwaukee

Ingeteam, Inc., a supplier to the wind and solar energy industries, will establish a new plant in Milwaukee that will specialize in designing renewable energy products. The company intends to begin construction on the project in April so it can be finished by the end of the year.

Ingeteam has its headquarters in Bilbao, Spain, and is made up of 28 companies employing more than 3,500 people. Besides the field of renewable energy, the company is present in the following  areas:  railway traction, marine, combined heat and power, the iron and steel industry and hydraulic machines.

The production facility will be approximately 100,000 square feet in size and will focus on manufacturing its Indar-brand wind power generators and Ingeteam converters, as well as solar power inverters. When working at its full capacity, the plant will be capable of producing 7,500 megawatts of green energy every year. It will create as many as 60 jobs in 2011 and 275 jobs by 2015.

“After carefully analyzing our company’s needs, we selected Milwaukee for our new production facility because the city is conveniently located for distribution of our products and has a solid industrial base from which Ingeteam can source materials,” said Ander Gandiaga, Ingeteam’s corporate director for international development.  Aitor Sotes, CEO of Ingeteam’s U.S. subsidiary, also mentioned the city’s skilled work force, local college programs and state requirements for renewable energy.

At the moment, Ingeteam has a 12-15 percent market share of the worldwide wind power component market. However, it has room to grow in America and will use the Milwaukee plant as a means to do so.  The new factory is going to make possible the production of equipment for the equivalent of 7,500 MW each year. In these facilities, several ranges of converter/generator products will be manufactured, covering ranges from 1.5 to 5 MW of power for wind usage. In the medium term, Ingeteam plans  to endow the plant with the capacity to perform joint testing of complete equipment. For the solar photovoltaic market, the production of converters (inverters) will cover the range from 2.5 to 500 kW

Ingeteam has a unit in Santa Clara, California, for sales of solar photovoltaic inverters and is also present in Mequon, Wisconsin, carrying out wind turbine operation and maintenance activities. Through this activity, Ingeteam today manages more than 2,200 MW distributed over 60 wind farms all over the world.

In addition, Ingeteam has an important experience in water management, through its brand Indar Hydraulic Equipment, a leading pumps manufacturer. Indar started its commercial activity in the USA in 2003. Currently, it supplies submersible pumping equipment.
