Jupiter Bach has initiated construction of a new world class manufacturing site in China

Through our devotion to wind, Jupiter Bach is in the progress of expanding our production footprint in China, by a new state of the art factory in Dezhou, Shandong province, to serve leading wind turbine manufacturers.

2019 has started at a high pace for our team in Dezhou (Shangdong, China) as we are well on the way to start operation in a newly built factory complex during second quarter of 2019. The new factory will be nearly 25,000 m2 and will further strengthen the global leadership of Jupiter Bach, delivering high quality and competitive components for the wind industry and thereby supporting the strategy in the industry to further improve levelized cost of energy.
Starting at the design phase, the new factory has been laid out to fulfil the highest environmental standards and supported by investments in production technology, high quality and efficiency are key factors of the new factory.
The location in Dezhou is strategically chosen to serve both global and local customers in the wind industry and each year more than 50,000 parts will leave the location and be part of wind turbines producing green energy for a cleaner world.
Together with the newly inaugurated factory in Weihai (Shandong, China) Jupiter Bach operates more than 35,000 m2 in China.

Nacelle cover #50,000 delivered

During December 2018 Jupiter Bach has rolled off the line nacelle cover number 50,000 since Jupiter Bach entered the wind power industry.

Nacelle cover #50,000 is a Shanghai Electric 7MW offshore cover built in our newly inaugurated factory in Weihai, China. The 50,000 covers are mounted on approx. 15-20% of the total installed turbines, which produce enough renewable power for over 75 million homes.

Jupiter Bach is very proud to be part of this positive impact on the reduction of the global carbon footprint and is very much looking forward to continue partnering with our customers working towards the same goal.

This milestone in 2018 marks yet another stepping stone in Jupiter Bach’s devotion to wind, which earlier this year also resulted in the introduction of the scalable nacelle cover called iO

Proud to be part of the first Nordex N149/4.0-4.5 installations

When Nordex in August erected the first of two N149/4.0-4.5 turbines at the Wennerstorf II windfarm located roughly 30 km south of Hamburg, it was with a prototype nacelle cover from Jupiter Bach.

The new nacelle cover developed for the Delta4000 series, is the second step in the co-operation with Nordex, after having successfully delivered the nacelle covers for the N131 turbines since 2017.

With the N149 turbines, the Nordex Group sets new standards in the light-wind segment for both rotor diameter and maximum output. The N149 turbines are also well designed in terms of acoustics for increasing citizen acceptance, with a sound emission level of less than 106.1 dB(A) even when operating at full load. In addition, they can be operated in a variety of sound-optimized modes which can be set according to wind direction and the time of day to keep noise levels as low as possible.

The start of serial production is scheduled for Q1 2019.

Jupiter Bach Grand Opening Weihai China

On August 28th the Grand Opening of the new site in Weihai China took place. Present during the ceremony were local government representatives incl. the Vice Mayor of Weihai, customers, suppliers, local employees and the global management team from Jupiter Bach.

Grand Opening - Lineup


After speeches by WEI General Manager Leo Dong and CEO Jens Kristensen, the new factory was officially inaugurated by “ touching ball” which is a Chinese tradition when opening new factories.

One year later the site became ISO9000 certified and in 2013 was ISO14000/OHSA18500 certified. In 2016 the plant had expanded to 4500 m2 and 2017 added the second building of 4100 m2 for manufacturing of offshore products. With the new building, the two locations have now been, not alone consolidated, but also expanded to 11600 m2 -and the 8 employees in which Jupiter Bach WEI started out with is now more than 100. All this is done to support Jupiter Bach’s growth strategy.
The factory is located strategically in China serving both international customers who require export from China to overseas markets as well as local Chinese OEM’s. The factory has now begun partial operation and will be 100% operational early October when the production of offshore nacelles and spinners will be transferred.

Jupiter Bach is the world’s largest wind turbine nacelle and spinner manufacturer. To learn more about our products click here.

Successful qualification in China for deliveries to Vestas USA

Safety, quality, delivery and cost are key when launching new products in today’s market.

The SQE (Sourcing Quality Engineer) team from Vestas has been visiting the Jupiter Bach factory in Dezhou, China to carry out First Article Inspection of the first 3MW nacelle cover panels which will be delivered to Vestas Brighton Nacelle factory in the USA. Vestas plans to assemble the first 3MW Nacelles at the end of 2018 which will be installed as part of new wind projects for the US wind market and mark a shift in the demand size of turbines in the US.

The First Article Inspection includes inspection of moulds, assembly fixtures, fiber panels, mounting parts, pre-assembled nacelle parts and transport fixtures. In addition, work instructions, process descriptions and procedures are verified to secure safety, quality, delivery and cost. The experience Jupiter Bach has in the wind industry really shows during these qualifications as the company has substantial experience with what the customer requires and lives by the values the customers also strive to.

The SQE team was very satisfied with the overall inspection of the tools, products and documentation and Jupiter Bach now has received the green light from Vestas to begin shipping units to the USA.
