Joint venture with Denmark's Fiberline Composites / Carbon fibre-reinforced rotorblade components for wind energy market
With the goal of manufacturing both longer and more efficient wind turbine blades, Mitsubishi Rayon (MRC, Tokyo / Japan; www.mrc.co.jp) has set up a 49:51 carbon fibre components joint venture with Fiberline Composites (Middelfart / Denmark; www.fiberline.com). Advanced Carbon Pultrusion will have a start-up capital of EUR 23m and is due to start operations in October this year. The jv will be based at Fiberline Composite’s existing plant in central Denmark.

Combining the two companies’ expertise – MRC’s industrial carbon fibres and Fiberline Composites’ experience in developing glass- and carbon fibre-reinforced rotorblade components and profiles – the jv will be able to “offer competitive carbon fibre components to wind turbine makers via a closely integrated supply chain.” Fiberline’s CEO Peter Thorning added that Advanced Carbon Pultrusion will be capable of offering an “even better balance between price, quality and security of supply.”
