FREIENBACH, SWITZERLAND (Jan. 11, 10:25 a.m. ET) — Dow Formulated Systems, an arm of Dow Chemical Co., has opened a global wind energy application center in Switzerland to promote its portfolio of resins, foams and adhesives to wind blade manufacturers.

As part of a new 8,700 square foot center in Freienbach, the wind facility includes what Dow called “new system formulation capabilities, process testing equipment and semi-scale lab demonstration tools.”

One highlight is a new, five-meter blade mold section, said Jean Luc Guillaume, global marketing manager for wind energy at Down Formulated Systems.
