Saitec Offshore Technologies has
signed an agreement with Spanish Wind Energy Association (AEE) aiming to join
forces with other companies and stakeholders of the industry that are key to
build up wind energy ecosystem in Spain.
This membership means a great milestone for Saitec
Offshore Technologies because it confirms the company’s commitment to the
development of the sector as it has tangible impact on local economic and
employment and it is expected to grow in the following years.
Additionally, another key goal is to promote and accelerate investments and to
raise awareness of offshore floating wind sector in Spain.
Juan Moya García, Business
Development Manager of Saitec Offshore Technologies: “As one of the few
offshore wind floating platform designers in the world, Saitec Offshore
Technologies should be part of AEE. We are delighted to join the association to
help the fledging but unstoppable floating offshore wind sector to set foot in
Spain, as it is already doing all around the world at a great speed”.
AEE is an association that brings together over 200 companies and coordinates
research into the areas surrounding wind energy. It contributes to the
formulation of the normative framework with a view to the sector developing
under the best possible conditions. It disseminates the reality of wind energy
and endeavors to raise awareness in society. It sets in motion high-level
events at which it brings together prominent national and international
personalities. It publishes reports and studies which are a reference.
Moreover, AEE exercises the secretariat of REOLTEC (Technological
Platform for the Wind Sector), it coordinates with ICEX the presence of Spanish
companies at fairs and congresses abroad and is a member of international
associations such as WindEurope (former EWEA).
