LM Glasfiber is threatening to suspend production at its factory at Ponferrada, northwest Spain due to a lack of orders. Trade union CCOO blames the situation on the regional government which is blocking the concession of new licences for wind turbine parks, and on the company for not coping with rapid growth. The union acknowledges that the plant is going through a crisis, putting 240 jobs at risk. At present the company has no new orders, management has suspended purchases of material and work already in course is due to be finished in May 2003. LM Glasfiber recently announced the closure of its turbine blade plant in Haarup, Denmark (GlassOnline, 14 March 2003).
