We take small wind turbines seriously
Once, small wind turbines were mostly for idealists and engineering hobbyists. An overlooked niche, which the big wind turbine producers were not interested in because the economics and scaling opportunities were, in their eyes, not attractive enough.
It just has to be done right
We decided to challenge that at Solid wind power. We chose to put all of our energies into developing modern, highly effective and rock solid turbines, which make it a good investment to buy your own wind turbine. It is not difficult to produce effective and long-life small wind turbines if you use the newest technologies and employ the right people.
Thoroughly tested technology that works
Today, Solid wind power can present a number of supreme and thoroughly tested wind turbines, which all work effectively and reliably.
We have installed more than 500 wind turbines and collected data from 3,000,000 production hours, so we know what works.
Carsten is the type of business leader who knows his profession through and through. He finished his apprenticeship as a machine operator at Vestas Wind Systems A/S and quickly showed special capabilities and interests in development tasks. A wealth of ideas and the desire to create naturally steered him in the direction of life as an independent businessman – a dream he realized in 2003 with the takeover of a little forging company with three employees. With Carsten in the lead, the company has grown vigorously since then so that it now employs more than 100 people at different locations in the Skjern and Ringkøbing areas.
