Wind Power Cluster
The wind power cluster was born of Estonian companies’ wish to be involved in the rapidly and innovatively evolving wind power sector.
The emergence of wind power plants is connected not only to their erection and electricity production, but the sector also provides work for many industries.
The wind power cluster has committed to the development of a development strategy for the Estonian wind power industry sector and enabling its partners to participate in international energy production and technology cooperation projects. Implementation of the 2010-2013 strategy of the cluster contributes directly to the realisation of the objectives related to renewable power engineering and energy conservation set in the national energy management development plan to 2020.
The of the cluster during 2010-2013 include:
1. becoming linked to the supply chains of international wind power companies;
2. launch of the manufacture of package solutions for compact wind generators;
3. commercialisation of the planning of wind farms;
4. launch of the manufacture of wind generator parts in Estonia;
5. working out solutions for the conflict between wind farms and radars.
In addition, wind power cluster co-operates with other communities who share a common interest in the wind energy sector, for example electrical car cluster and the wind energy clusters of other countries .
The cluster’s partners include companies in metal, IT as well as wind energy development and electricity production, as well as educational and research institutions.
The umbrella organisation of the cluster is the Estonian Wind Power Association and it is supported by the European Regional Development Fund and the Tallinn City Enterprise Board.
The cluster may be joined on an ongoing basis. We are particularly seeking all contacts with companies in the plastics and electronics industries who wish to claim their share in the development of wind power in the future.
