In 2015, the regional Government, nanocenter and its subsidiary company Altren jointly attracted an investor for construction of the first 35 MW wholesale wind farm in Russia in the Ulyanovsk region - the Finnish company Fortum.
It was also possible to conduct wind monitoring in the region and to begin the project for wind turbine components (blades) production localization.
In 2019, a plant was launched to manufacture composite blades for 3.4 MW to 4.2 MW wind turbines. The plant has no analogs in the Russian Federation (the project of Vestas Manufacturing Rus LLC).
The production is located at the site of Aerocomposite CJSC in Ulyanovsk. In 2021, the share of the nanocenter was sold to a strategic partner.
