Wind turbine company to open Grandview Heights facility

Surrey-based Endurance Wind Power Inc. will open its new manufacturing facility at #101 19347 24 Ave.

A worldwide leader in wind energy is setting up a new shop in Grandview Heights.

Today (Thursday), Surrey-based Endurance Wind Power Inc. will open its new manufacturing facility at #101 19347 24 Ave.

With the new facility, the company will be able to expand its wind-turbine assembly operations, as well as add space for its head-office professionals.

The new facility will manufacture the company’s E3120 wind turbine, which generates enough energy to power a dairy farm or hospital, according to a news release.

“This year alone, we’ve created 80 new jobs at Endurance; 40 of them right here in the Lower Mainland,” said Glenn Johnson, CEO of Endurance Wind Power.

“This new facility is indicative of how far we’ve come in a relatively short time. We started here in Surrey in 2007, just six of us, with a one room office and a big vision of creating a global network of wind power to deliver affordable clean energy.”

The new factory will officially throw open its doors today, from noon until 2 p.m., at an event that will include Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts and Minister of Energy and Mines Bill Bennett.
