Start-up firm says it will employ 50 at new turbine plant
HUDSON–21st-century wind power may be headed for Columbia County. At a presentation last week to 40 county and state leaders, principals of Aerocity Wind Power LLC, a start-up company that plans to make and market a new type of wind powered electrical generation system, announced plans to open a plant here that could employ 50 people.
The presentation at Space 360 on Warren Street provided an overview of the company, which has its headquarters in lower Manhattan, and included its view of the market opportunities as well as “the expected growth of our company and how that relates to our need for more people to work for us here and in New York City,” said Russell Tencer, the company’s chief executive officer. He spoke by phone conversation this week, a few days after the Hudson event.
