11 Jun 2020
Altren LLC, a portfolio company of Ulyanovsk nanocenter ULNANOTECH has signed a partnership agreement with Emergya Wind Technologies (EWT), a wind turbine producer from the Netherlands.
According to the agreement, Altren as EWT’s partner in Russia will be able to sell EWT’s equipment and attract prospective customers and investors to install 500 kW – 1 MW wind turbines in isolated and remote areas where power is generated by diesel power plants. These territories are the most promising for the development of renewable energy sources.
Founded in 2004, EWT is the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of direct-drive wind turbines. To date, more than 600 EWT’s turbines have been installed in North America, Europe and Asia, covering the electricity needs of almost 500,000 households.
According to Altren, “the signed agreement allows the company to use the entire range of wind turbines, starting from 5 kW and ending with multi-megawatt wind turbines. For now, Altren can offer its partners and customers any comprehensive solution that includes RES equipment, storage devices and control system, off-grid or on-grid. Solutions can be used in microgeneration and large wind farms, both for their own needs and for power supply to small settlements or industrial parks. Also the possibility of wind turbine component production localization in Russia has been discussed with EWT if the market volume will enable it in the future”.
