The «NovaWind’s» goal is to consolidate the «Rosatom’s» programs in innovative technological platforms for the new energy segment. At the initial stage «NovaWind» will unite all the wind energy assets of «Rosatom»
«The successful entry into domestic and international wind energy markets as well as the development of new products largely depend on full concentration of the managerial effort on the success of the currently implemented new energy programs. To meet these challenging goals we have to obtain and develop a number of core competences, which are absolutely new to Russia. Among them there are wind farms’ construction and operational management, organisation of the wind turbines’ ramp-up production, maintenance and after-sales support, marketing and sales. Considering the international cooperation with «Lagerwey», we have to separate our wind energy program into a new energy dedicated business», - commenting the establishment of NovaWind stated its newly appointed Director General Alexandre Korchagin.
«VetroSGC», which since 2016 has been responsible for 970MW wind farms construction and now is launching the largest wind turbines’ localisation program in Russia, will become a part of «NovaWind». «OTEK» will assign «NovaWind» its rights on the License agreement with Lagerwey. Subsequently «NovaWind» will partner Lagerwey in a joint venture.
«The thermal power business, which I lead today, will become a separate business unit. The «OTEK»’s management team has fulfilled the goals set to us by «Rosatom». We’ve successfully implemented an effective business management model: it took us three years to double the profitability of the Rosatom’s thermal power assets. Now we have to concentrate all our effort on new energy projects», - noted Alexandre Korchagin.
