Ashland to Supply Resin for Ohio Wind Energy Grant Project
“This is a great opportunity to meet a significant need in this rapidly growing market,” said Cedric Ball, marketing projects leader, Ashland Performance Materials. “Steel towers for large wind turbines have reached size and weight limits for over-the-road transport. Composite towers potentially solve this problem.”
This is the second wind energy project to tap Ashland as a collaborative partner. Last fall, Ashland announced its participation in the University of Maine Offshore Wind Consortium’s DeepCwind project, which was awarded an $8 million grant from the federal government’s stimulus program.
