The wpd Group has plans to soon operate in the U.S. market, under the name wpd wind projects Inc. This move is based on the recent signing of a contract to take over Volkswind USA Inc., with its head office in Portland, Oregon.
Volkswind was founded in 2008. The team based there is working on various wind-farm projects in different states throughout the U.S.
“We see major potential in the American wind energy market and we are looking forward to expanding wpd’s international activities together with the local team, and implementing promising projects,” said Dr. Gernot Blanke, CEO at wpd.
wpd develops and operates onshore and offshore wind farms, and is actively engaged in 18 countries around the world with a head office is in Bremen. The company has had recent success in the South American market.
In August, the Chilean Energy Ministry announced the results of an extensive invitation to tender for delivering electricity. Wpd won contracts for three projects with a total volume of 350 MW, all to be erected by 2021.
