Denmark-based KK Wind Solutions has entered the Indian market, where it will manufacture and sell ‘low voltage ride through’ (LVRT) devices, which are essential for maintaining grid stability.
The Danish company specialises in control systems for wind turbines — electronics that go into controlling the operations of a wind turbine —
According to a BusinessLine report, the company’s CTO-cum-COO, Rene Balle, sees a big opportunity in India because LVRT has been made mandatory. LVRT are devices that ensure that a wind turbine, or even a wind farm, stays connected to the grid even if there is a short-term voltage drop.
The £200-million KK Wind Solutions’ foray into the Indian market is through a tie-up with Bengaluru-based Enerfra Projects, a company founded by UB Reddy, a wind industry veteran who had earlier worked for Mytrah Energy and Enercon, added the report.
