The article focuses on the second wind turbine blade factory opened by LM Glasfiber in Urumqi, China and in Dabaspet, Karnataka. The Chinese facility is expected to produce 500 blades per year and employe 200 workers. The Indian plant will make 800 blades annually and employ 400 people. The facilities complete the company's 1-GW capacity expansion program for 2007.
