Gamesa Closing Pennsylvania Plant After U.S. Wind Credit Expires

Gamesa Corp. Tecnologica SA, Spain’s largest wind-turbine maker, plans to close a blade factory in Pennsylvania to cut costs after a U.S. tax incentive expired.

The Zamudio, Spain-based company will fire 62 people and close the Ebensburg plant on March 31, Frank Fuselier, a spokesman, said today in an e-mail. Gamesa’s other U.S. facility in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, which produces nacelles, the car-sized units that house turbines’ machinery, won’t be affected.

The closing comes after the production tax credit for wind power expired Dec. 31, potentially slowing demand for wind-energy equipment.

“The changes we are making in our supply chain help us to compete in a world without a PTC,” Fuselier said.

Projects that began construction before the end of 2013 may qualify for the production tax credit, which pays wind-farm owners 2.3 cents for every kilowatt-hour produced.
