The Department of Energy's proposed action is to issue a loan guarantee to Nordic Windpower USA Inc., for the assembly and testing of two-bladed, patented teeter hub technology wind turbines. The initial production will be of 1 megawatt N1000 Nordic wind turbine nacelles. The assembly and testing operations would take place in an existing facility, Super Hangar Bay 12, within the Kansas City International Airport in Kansas City, Missouri. The Super Hangar facility is located adjacent to Interstate 29 on the east side of the airport. Bay 12 was designed for overhauling large aircraft such as the Boeing 747 and includes ample space for Nordic's assembly and testing operations. Project operations will be moved to the Bay 12 from the current site of Nordic's operations in Pocatello, Idaho.
