Kongsberg Maritime AS has acquired Trondheim, Norway-based wind energy consultancy InTurbine.

According to Kongsberg, the purpose of the acquisition is to increase the company's services and products related to the wind energy segment through the recently established Centre for Wind Farm Management, which was established to develop solutions for wind farm control, condition monitoring and the operation of wind turbines.

"The employees of InTurbine have substantial competence gained at the former wind turbine supplier ScanWind and later as part of General Electric’s commitment to offshore wind in Trondheim," says Andreas Jagtoyen, general manager at Kongsberg Maritime. "This acquisition will form a solid basis for further development of our new department within the operation and maintenance of wind turbines under the name Kongsberg Wind Services."
