MONTREAL, Oct. 23 /CNW/ - AAER Inc. (TSX-V: AAE), Canada's only wind
turbine manufacturer, announced today that it has reached a licensing
agreement with EUROS Entwicklungsgesellschaft fur Windkraftanlagen mbH
("EUROS") allowing it to manufacture blades using EUROS' technical
specifications. AAER will use the blades in the assembly of its wind turbines.
"This agreement completes our technology portfolio and will allow us to
start production and assemble our first wind turbine in 2008 as planned," said
Dave Gagnon, President and CEO of AAER. "Like our previous agreements, the
transfer of proven technology by an established player, will allow AAER to
provide highly reliable turbines to its North American clients. The agreement
with EUROS also gives us greater control over our supply chain, which is
increasingly becoming a challenge in our industry."
Under the open-ended contract, Euros engineers will provide staff
training, initial production supervision and quality control. This technical
support will make it possible to start production on the blades under optimal
quality assurance conditions.
