“In the first stage, Milwaukee will be Indar Hydro’s main base in North America for sales and marketing and for technical assistance within the U.S. and Canada,” said Pedro Garciandia, international sales area manager for Indar Electric. Garciandia said engineering and assembly of hydro generators likely will follow.

At first, the plant will focus primarily on producing Indar generators and Ingeteam converters and inverters for other aspects of the North American renewable energy market, Ingeteam reported.
