Natural Power Consultants has signed an agreement with LatWind, a firm that provides site evaluations and wind measurement, to offer new combined services to the wind industry in Chile.

This announcement follows a period of strong growth within Natural Power, movements into new markets and the acquisition of new products and services such as the exclusive licenses to the ZephIR laser anemometer technology and VENTOS advanced CFD wind flow modeling code.

According to Natural Power, this partnership will allow clients in Chile and Latin America as a whole to benefit from the company's experience and expertise gained across Europe and North America, while maintaining and growing LatWind's local office staffed with skilled wind engineers.

"South America has fantastic wind energy potential," says Stuart Hall, director of Natural Power. "We believe that together with LatWind, we have the tools, experience and local presence to help realize this potential at the lowest project risk for our clients."
