Ingeteam Celebrates 10 Years Of Production In Milwaukee
Since opening the production plant ten years ago, Ingeteam has manufactured in Milwaukee more than 3,000 Indar wind generators.
Ingeteam is celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the
completion of its US offices and production plant, located in Milwaukee, WI.
Built on a former brownfield in the city's Menomonee Valley, the LEED Gold
certified building was completed in 2011 and has brought over 150 new jobs to
Since opening, over 3,000 new
Indar brand wind turbine generators have been manufactured at the 114,000 sq.
ft facility, and the company has supplied 2GW of solar inverters for the US
During the past decade, the Service
division has also been providing support to the different business units across
the US and collaborating with wind and solar customers offering a wide variety
of services: troubleshooting, commissioning, EOW inspections, QA/QC, blades
services, training, preventive/corrective maintenance, up tower services, spare
parts and full O&M services.
Ingeteam's activity in renewables
continues to increase in the US. In the state of California, Ingeteam has just
supplied an energy storage project that aims to study whether distributed clean
energy would offset the growing demand for electricity in the area. The battery
inverters supplied by the company are capable of storing 20MWh for 4 hours. Also
in California, Indar's Submersible Motors & Pumps Business Unit, belonging
to the Ingeteam Group, has supplied a submersible motor pump to the Charles E.
Meyer desalination plant that will carry high-sea water to 100,000 California
households. The pumping system, installed on the seabed, ensures a 30% supply
of drinking water to the city of Santa Barbara.
Indar's experience in pumping
solutions has also made it possible to solve the drought problem affecting Lake
Mead, the largest artificial reservoir in the United States that supplies water
to areas of Nevada, Arizona and California. In recent years, this reservoir has
been affected by drought and its water level has reached historic lows. Thanks
to the submersible pumps, installed at a depth of 40 meters, it has been
possible to extract water from the deepest part of the lake.
“We owe this milestone to
the sound vision of our executive management, the support of local officials
and economic development teams, and the dedication of our entire Ingeteam staff.
Most importantly, we thank our customers who bestowed their trust in our company,
its products and services”, said Nohra Nasr, Vice President and General
Manager of Solar PV and BESS at Ingeteam Inc.
Adolfo Rebollo, Chief Executive Officer - Ingeteam S.A.
added, “Today, we contemplate our achievements with pride and motivation to
continue our mission and objectives of upholding our status amongst the top
pioneers in the renewable industry worldwide and in the US. We are fully committed
to clean energy, and to job creation and manufacturing in the US. I am thankful
to all who contributed to our successful deployment in the US. We feel home in
