Daniel Alonso Group is working to get Windar Renovables listed on the stock exchange. The Spanish steel maker – which owns more than two thirds of the turbine tower manufacturer, with Siemens Gamesa holding the rest – has hired Rothschild, Morgan Stanley, Garrigues and Bank of America to prepare an initial public offering, reports Spanish newspaper El Confidencial.
