Electricity even in low winds - Post on www.tagesschau.de as of 16th January 2022
Range of the Tagesschau portal shows effect
Posted on tagesschau.de on Sunday mornings - by Sunday evenings we already recorded the first enquiries about our #windwise #maxcap #wind turbine "Lighter, less powerful, cheaper" - The market is in upheaval - also due to the change of government in Berlin.

Studio discussion: Prof. Dr. Peter Vennemann, Münster University of Applied Sciences - WDR contribution from 05.01.2022
Downsizing as a keyword for the trend in wind turbine construction
Prof. Dr. Peter Vennemann, Münster University of Applied Sciences, has been invited to the WDR studio as an expert on wind energy. He comments on the previously broadcast contribution "Windkraft-Revolution in Lienen"
Prof. Dr. Peter Vennemann speaks of a trend towards "downgesized" wind turbine generators, as is characteristic of the #windwise #maxcap.

Wind power revolution in Lienen-Germany - WDR report from 05.01.2022
Markus Becker and Benno Sandmann explain the key benefits of #windwise #maxcap
Here is the link to the WDR report in the TV broadcast "Lokalzeit" from 2022-01-05: www.ardmediathek.de/video/lokalzeit-muensterland/windkraft-revolution-in-lienen/wdr/Y3JpZDovL3dkci5kZS9CZWl0cmFnLWMzNzk2NjJhLTJhOTktNDAxYi1iODMyLTY2ZjRkZWM1OTgzZg/
The result: a very informative report about our new wind turbine generator #maxcap. The advantages of the characteristics of our #windwise #maxcap are explained simply and clearly in German.
Cooperation agreement between
windwise and bentec / Kenera concluded
A further milestone has been reached!
windwise has concluded a comprehensive cooperation agreement with the company Bentec. With this, the companies agree on a long-term technology partnership which will enable Bentec to establish itself as a wind turbine manufacturer. Bentec will use the maxcap technology developed by windwise and thus build the maxcap turbines in various European and Asian countries. In doing so, the windwise engineers will support Bentec with the necessary technology support as a cooperation partner.
As part of the climate protection competition of NRW, windwise was awarded the contract in 2018 and has since developed the maxcap technology with a team of 18 engineers. The maxcap wind turbine is a unique base-load optimised wind turbine with a rated output of 2.3MW and a rotor diameter of 141m.
@Benno Sandmann, Shareholder and Managing Director #windwise: "This marks the next milestone for windwise after we have been developing the maxcap technology - a unique base load optimised wind turbine with 2.3MW and 141m rotor diameter - since 2018, as part of the climate protection competition with funding from NRW and the European Union.".
Thorsten Dirks, Vice President of #Kenera Manufacturing and Managing Director of #Bentec commented, "This agreement is an important milestone in our development, it supports us in developing innovative technological solutions and enables us to play an active role in the energy transition."
Bentec, based in Bad Bentheim, Germany, is a company that manufactures and supplies reliable, safe and efficient rigs and equipment for oil, gas and geothermal wells around the world. Combining these world-class solutions with comprehensive services ranging from 24/7 on-site support to a sophisticated training offering, Bentec is a true vertically integrated systems provider.
In addition, Bentec is expanding its current offering in both the hydrogen and energy conversion markets with the creation of the new Kenera business unit. Bentec recognises the importance of industry-wide ESG goals and sees itself playing an important role in this transition.
The wind turbine "maxcap" is a unique base load optimised wind turbine with 2.3MW rated power and 141m rotor diameter, which has been optimised for low wind sites. The innovative maxcap 141 achieves a capacity factor IV; 40% at type class IV sites and even>50% capacity factor at type class III - II sites.

Management System Certificate
We are certified!
The certification according to the new quality management standard DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 is another important milestone in the history of windwise. We have met the requirements for a quality management system according to ISO 9001:2015 and are officially certified according to the standard DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 since 14.02.2020.
The certification consists of a review of the documentation and the demonstration of the practical application.
We are pleased to officially inform you today that we have passed the ISO 9001:2015 certification through the successful audit in January 2020 with DNV GL.
