“Wind power is addictive”

“The construction and operation of wind turbines is a link to the forces of nature. Forces, that we regard with respect and consideration. We harvest wind power, and it thrills us again and again every day.” Dr. Alexander Jäger-Bloh


Renewable energy works with the forces of nature. Successful projects start off with excitement. Our foundations are competence, personal commitment, and many years of experience in our industry. Get to know our team.
