The Swedish Wind Power Technology Centre (SVTC) has been set up to support the Swedish wind power industry.
The centre, funded by the Swedish Energy Agency, the industry and Chalmers, aims to support the Swedish wind industry with know-how on wind power design and to train engineers. The SEK100 million wind power centre hopes to ensure that the region becomes a leader in wind turbine technology.
“It is exciting and an honour to be commissioned, together with Chalmers, ABB, SKF, GE Wind and others, to lead and pursue specific areas in order to bring the creation of a Swedish wind turbine to fruition. It is vital that Swedish industrial know-how is utilised in the expansion of wind power in Sweden and internationally, says Matthias Rapp, Chairman of the wind power technology centre.
