German wind turbine services provider Deutsche Windtechnik AG said today it has established a subsidiary in Sweden as it prepares to expand into the Scandinavian market in the medium term.
The new unit, called Deutsche Windtechnik AB, will offer complete maintenance of wind turbines, including basic service agreements and individually tailored full maintenance contracts.
The firm is currently holding talks with various prospective clients and expects to seal contracts in the short and medium term.
The Swedish subsidiary, led by Linus Sturesson as managing director, has its headquarters in the southern Swedish municipality of Varberg. The company also has a sales office in Stockholm.
Sturesson views wind power as the future of the Swedish energy supply given that the potential of hydropower has largely been exhausted. "The remuneration for wind power in Sweden is very low. This makes it even more important to optimise the costs of wind farms," he said.
