TPI Composites, an Arizona-based maker of wind turbine blades, plans to open a new facility in Fall River, MA, as soon as January, according to a report in the Boston Globe. The plant will be a development hub for TPI’s facilities in Rhode Island, Iowa, Mexico, and China, the report says. The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center has confirmed it will provide a $250,000 grant to TPI, contingent on the jobs expected to be created at the new plant (about 30 when it opens).
