Solute expands its collaborations in Denmark.

Denmark is one of the reference countries in wind energy. According to 2011 figures, it is the country with the highest consumption of electricity generated by the wind, with 28% of the total. With 3926 MW of installed power, it has earned this recognition through the experience accumulated over the past 30 years the development of innovative R&D wind power solutions.

In fact, Denmark continues working on this type of energy to increase by 50% wind energy production by 2020. Behind these ambitious goals, important companies have established research and development operations in the country because of its experience, network and flexible and qualified workforce.

In this context, we have established several collaboration agreements with leading Danish companies of the sector. The first agreement was signed at the end of 2010 with HCP Engineering for the development of EPC projects within the oil sector, gas, wind energy, construction and transportation.

Since early 2012, we decided to extend our collaborations in the field by signing two important agreements.

One of them was signed with the company LAC Engineering. This engineering company based in the city of Hinnerup, offers engineering consulting services for analysis, optimization and validation of mechanical and structural components of wind turbines. By means of this agreement, in SOLUTE we will collaborate with LAC in the mechanical design and structural analysis of future wind turbines.

The other agreement was reached with the Folkecenter for Renewable Energy. This independent and non-profit center dedicated to the development and implementation of renewable energy is supported by the Danish state, local authorities and national and international agencies. It acts as a consultant in the field of wind energy. Located in the city of Hurup Thy, the "Village Green for Research" is a center with 3000 square meters that holds offices, workshops, training center and even housing for the staff who work there. By this agreement, we will cooperate in the joint development of new models of low and medium power wind turbines specifically oriented towards self-sufficiency.
