ABILENE, Texas -

Another big contract for an Abilene company to build wind turbine towers seems to solidify this area as a leader in wind energy.

Broadwind Energy has announced that they have another $34-million dollar contract to build towers at its Abilene facility. 

Broadwind's president says this starts to fill the capacity of the Abilene facility into 2014.

The company announced a separate $14-million dollar order for towers just a couple of weeks ago.
