Norwegian technology group Kongsberg said today it is launching a wind power division, to be based at Lade, Trondheim.
Kongsberg Group said the facility would become its Centre for Optimum Wind Park Operation, a joint venture between marine technology developer Kongsberg Maritime and the parent company focussing on wind farm management and monitoring.
Kongsberg said through the Windsense R&D project it was already contributing to the sector.
The project has been supported by the Research Council of Norway and headed by the new wind power division at Kongsberg Maritime Lade, in partnership with eight other companies and R&D institutions.
