“In the past years we have invested a lot into the expansion of our services and the respective accreditations. Now it is time to focus on growing internationally,” explains Gerhard Gerdes, Managing Director of Deutsche WindGuard.

“India has a long tradition in wind energy and has set itself ambitious goals for the future. The installed power onshore alone is to be doubled by 2022”, says Leif Rehfeldt, Head of Business Development at Deutsche WindGuard GmbH, “The decision for India therefore was a pretty easy one to make. Especially since we have found in Dr. Kumaravel Rathinavel a leading wind energy expert as our managing director."

Dr. Kumaravel Rathinavel can look back on 18 years of experience in the wind industry. He was one of the first engineers who set up India’s “National Institute of Wind Energy” with the cooperation of Risoe National Laboratory (DTU Wind) Denmark. Afterwards a decade with NIWE, he joined Indian wind turbine manufacturer ReGen Powertech as Vice President and Head of Engineering & Development.

“Beside the ambitious goals for onshore wind, India also wants to push offshore wind development”, confirms Dr. Kumaravel, “I think the market here will profit greatly from WindGuard’s extensive knowhow and longstanding international experience. We are planning on building a strong local presence with our own expert teams in India. This way, we will be a reliable, long-term partner for the players on the Indian market and support them in reaching their goals.”
