LEITWIND’s strategy of diversification of new platforms and new markets, expanding with an assembly site in France

Notwithstanding the terrorist attacks in Paris, the EWEA (European Wind Energy Association) has decided to organize the “EWEA annual event 2015”, as planned. The international fair took place from Tuesday, 17 November to Friday, 20 November.

In their speeches, the French Environment and Energy Minister Ségolène Royal and Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the European Commission have expressed their sincere thanks to the EWEA for this decision. Minister Royal supports the general tone of the event stating that "wind energy is part of the solution to ensure our global security”. LEITWIND was there with its exhibition stand together with the big players in the wind sector.

Since spring, LEITWIND together with its associated company POMA, has been active in the French market and from 2017 onwards, components of the wind turbines will be manufactured at the production site in Grenoble.

With this industrial investment, POMA is diversifying from ropeway systems into wind turbines and is integrating the manufacturing processes implemented by LEITWIND and the HTI Group, under the POMA LEITWIND brand.

Today, LEITWIND is entering new markets with more efficient turbines featuring larger rotor diameters and higher nominal power. To emphasize is the most recent development of the LTW90 1.0MW, 1.5MW, 2.0MW, a latest optimization of the LTW80 platform, with a new, longer blade to increase annual energy production from 14% to 23%, even in sites with poor wind conditions.

Jean Souchal, POMA Chairman of the Board, states: “Via its activity in ropeway transportation, POMA possess the necessary expertise for carrying out projects with substructures that compose wind turbine farms: engineering and project management, industrialisation and manufacturing, general contracting and assembly, commissioning and maintenance, as well as an embedded ethic of quality and safety arising from transporting people.”
