InCom expands productive capacity in the UK with the support of COFIDES

InCom Group, designer and manufacturer of composite materials for the production of aeolian blades, will strengthen its position in the United Kingdom with the expansion of the productive capacity of its affiliate in the UK. COFIDES has allocated Euros 750,000, debited to FIEX, as a co-investment loan to the specialised company InCom Composite Engineering UK Ltd.

Counting the contribution from Spain's development finance institution, total investment in the project is Euro 1.1 million. The specialised company will use the financing for equipment, machinery and working capital.


The UK market for wind power is in a growth phase and expectations are that the trend will continue over the next few years. Robust customer demand, therefore, requires the company to expand its facilities and develop a new production line in a new plant that will be operational by end-2019.

This project will mainly impact Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 12 (Responsible Production and Consumption) and 13 (Action for the Climate) since the InCom Group is implementing a system of nearby supplier selection and approval that aims to gradually reduce its carbon footprint. Moreover, the company produces materials ultimately destined for the production of renewable energy and the consequently reduced consumption of fossil fuel.

COFIDES President José Luis Curbelo underscored the Spanish company's commitment to innovation as the supplier to the main manufacturers of windmill blades and turbines. "For COFIDES, it is very important to support projects that enable the reduction of greenhouse gases and contribute to the global energy transition that is needed if the goals of the Paris Agreement and the SDG are to be met."

InCom CFO Rodrigo Gómez acknowledges the importance of this financing for the future of the Group and asserts that "the expansion of our productive capacity in the UK will allow us to continue to grow and take advantage of the opportunity for strong development that Spain is promoting, with a clear bet on wind energy. We accept this new challenge with a sense of commitment and responsibility, but also with the desire to stimulate the use of renewable sources of energy and sustainable consumption, both socially responsible values that define the InCom Group".

With headquarters in Elda (Alicante), Spain, the InCom Group is made up of three companies dedicated to the engineering, design and manufacture of composite materials to produce aeolian blades. The Group offers just-in-time service with a global reach that includes three production centres (Spain, UK and Poland), production joint ventures to which it provides support in China and India, as well as a consignment warehouse in the United States. The Group has a workforce of 900 and sells 75% of production in international markets.


World's longest wind turbine blade is already a reality

LM Wind Power has recently manufactured the world’s first wind turbine blade beyond 100 meters.

Just a few weeks ago, LM Windpower announced that its first 107-meter blade did its first trip outside the facilities at their factory in Cherbourg, France.

Being one of the biggest single-components ever built, the 107-meter blade is set to capture the wind for GE’s Haliade-X 12 MW offshore wind turbine, the world’s most powerful wind turbine to date.

At InCom Group we are all proud of being part of this ambitious and stunning project.

GE presents the nacelle of its Haliade-X 12 MW, the world's most powerful wind turbine

GE Renewable Energy has presented a few days ago the first nacelle that will be sent from France to the Netherlands in the coming weeks, where its components will be assembled in the Haliade-X 12 MW prototype to be tested there.

This initial phase is designed to allow GE Renewable Energy to obtain the necessary data to receive its type of certification, a key component before marketing the product in 2021.

«The presentation of the first 12 MW Haliade-X gondola in Saint-Nazaire is the beginning of a new key phase in our ongoing commitment to structure the offshore wind turbine segment. This project clearly reflects our ability to invest and innovate, supporting our clients in an ultra-competitive market in exponential growth. Thanks to Haliade-X 12 MW, we are proud to prepare for the future of the marine wind industry in Saint-Nazaire, a reference site for the production of international offshore wind projects», said Jérôme Pécresse, CEO of GE Renewable Energy.

The Saint-Nazaire production plant manufactures marine wind turbine generators and gondolas and has already assembled more than 80 Haliade 150-6MW wind turbines since its opening in December 2014.

The market-leading 12 MW Haliade-X gondola and 107 meter long blades will allow GE Renewable Energy customers to generate more energy. With a rotor of 220 m and a height of 260 m, the turbine can generate 67 GWh in annual gross energy, providing enough clean energy to power 16,000 European homes and save up to 42 million metric tons of CO2, which is the equivalent of emissions generated by 9,000 vehicles in a single year.

InCom is committed to social cooperation and collaborates with the AFA Alzheimer Association

The Association of Relatives and Friends of the Alzheimer's Disease (AFA) presented last October its new van of nine seats adapted to raise wheelchairs, which will allow the entity to transfer the users who come every day to the different workshops and activities organized by it. Until now, they were the relatives of the users who hired an external service with the Sense Barreres Association in Petrer, but from now, families will be able to ask for this service directly to AFA.

The acquisition of the new vehicle has been possible thanks to the disinterested collaboration of InCom Group along with 40 other companies in Elda and the region, to which both the president of AFA, Isabel Orovio, and the workers of the association, have been visiting since last March.

Vehicle labeled with logos of the collaborating companies

To say thanks for the support received, AFA organized on October 19 at its facilities in Elda (Alicante) the presentation of the van with the sponsors, inviting them in addition to a thank you cocktail donated by Francis Valero, María José Moreno and Paco Milán.

The president of AFA has been satisfied and states that "the response of the companies has been very positive, they have shown great solidarity with AFA and we are very grateful". Now they have a very important new challenge for AFA: "We will continue to demand a new center, one that adapts to the needs of the users, although the current one is very good, it has remained small, and in winter or when it rains they can not walk because there is not enough space, so AFA continues fighting for a better space for its users. "


New Jersey Gets Ahead in the Race of Offshore in the USA

Phil Murphy, New Jersey Governor, has triggered the long-awaited implementation of this project by giving green light to the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU), after signing an executive order to move forward toward fulfilling its goal of 3.5 GW of offshore wind energy generation by 2013.

To get a good grasp of the implications of this, we first need to go back in time till 2010 when Chris Christie, former New Jersay Governor, signed OWEDA, which called for the BPU to develope an offshore renewable energy certificate (OREC) program supporting about 1.1 GW of generation from offshore market for the state. Ever since, there has been no movement on providing the necessary mechanisms to develop an offshore industry for the state.

Murphy’s Executive Order directs the BPU to begin the rulemaking process to fill the gaps in the current regulations governing the OREC program. The order also directs BPU President Joseph Fiordaliso and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Catherine McCabe to work together to establish an Offshore Wind Strategic Plan for New Jersey.

This program will mainly consist of providing with the necessary financial support by offshore wind developers to get this challenging project off the ground. After the BPU creates a process to approve those plans, it will issue a solicitation calling for proposed offshore wind projects for the generation of 1.1 GW of power. The order also calls for a study of the potential benefits to regional collaboration on offshore wind.
