Deutsche Windtechnik acquires shares in the Dutch group OutSmart B.V.
Bremen (Germany)/Velp (The Netherlands) (renewablepress) - The leading independent specialist in maintenance for wind turbines Deutsche Windtechnik and the Dutch-German group OutSmart, which focuses on offshore operations management and management services, are now joining forces: Deutsche Windtechnik has acquired 70 percent of OutSmart´s shares. By merging their complementary fields of expertise, the partners are looking to create an even broader range of services to meet the individual needs and interests of different operators and investors more fully.
"Due to increasing competition and cost pressure, the European energy market is in a transition phase and moving towards market consolidation. We are responding to this trend and will support our customers as a strong and independent service partner throughout the entire life cycle of wind energy projects", says Dennis Schiricke, Managing Director of OutSmart. The level of involvement and responsibility can vary widely depending on what the customer requires to optimise the revenue of a wind park project and manage it in a highly efficient manner.
Offshore operations management and strategic consultancy
"OutSmart brings a wealth of experience in asset management and consulting expertise to the table. Together, we are able to provide each customer with what they need for optimal wind park operation. This begins with project planning and development, and it ranges from individual services that are specifically tailored to the customer´s needs to full service above and below water. Intelligent operations management is an important factor for profitable offshore wind park operation, perhaps even the most important", says Jens Landwehr, Managing Director of Deutsche Windtechnik Offshore und Consulting GmbH. OutSmart´s range of services in the area of offshore wind park management includes technical and commercial management, 24/7 remote monitoring, HSEQ management, data analysis, reporting, and much more. Effective immediately, OutSmart will be able to draw upon the expertise of the entire Deutsche Windtechnik group in the areas of consultancy and project support.
Stronger national and international position
Matthias Brandt, Board Director at Deutsche Windtechnik, adds: "With OutSmart, we are optimally positioned as a competent and financially strong partner for project tenders in development and offshore operations management, not only in the Netherlands and Germany, but also in Great Britain, Belgium and the Scandinavian and French markets. This is particularly true for tenders of any kind that relate to operations management and service. Furthermore, we will be seeing positive synergy effects in the development of concepts, offers, and in carrying out the jobs we are commissioned to do."
Management and headquarters will be preserved
The management of the new OutSmart group will include the current OutSmart managing directors Dennis Schiricke, Erwin Coolen and Maarten de Keijzer. They also hold the remaining 30 percent of the shares. Jens Landwehr and Geert Timmers, Managing Director at Deutsche Windtechnik B.V., will also be appointed to the management board. OutSmart´s headquarters in Velp (The Netherlands) as well as the Operations Control Centre in Emden and the office in Hamburg (Germany) will remain. The name OutSmart will also be kept until further notice.
OutSmart is an independent wind asset management company providing management services and operations management in north-western Europe.
It was founded in 2006 by three Dutch wind energy experts. With over 45 employees and various offices in Europe, OutSmart is dedicated to assisting utilities, project managers, energy companies, OEM companies, fund managers as well as institutional and private investors with optimising the revenues from their wind assets.
