DIAB Group Invests to Support Growing Demand for Core Material in Chinese Wind Industry

May 25 2020

The investment is planned to be in operation end of 2021 and includes the setup of a PET structural foam production line in the existing facilities of DIAB Zhangjiagang.

The increased demand of PET core material in the wind energy sector in China drives the investment of a PET foam production line. The production line in Zhangjiagang will produce Diab's Divinycell PET range of products. Providing excellent properties, the material is designed to meet blade designs in an optimal way with the aim to reduce the cost in wind rotor blade manufacturing.

“The investment in China is the consequence of several multiyear contracts signed with major China based Wind OEMs over the last couple of months” says Tobias Hahn, CEO at Diab Group. “The plan is to start supplying the local Chinese market from the new extruder in the fourth quarter 2021.”

The China investment is the fifth in a series of investments for production of PET core foam with locations in US, Sweden, India and upgrading of an existing production line in Italy. The total capacity of PET core foam will make Diab a global leader in PET core foam production with production facilities in all relevant geographical regions.
