TÜV NORD Joins Forces with OutSmart
German TÜV NORD has taken a share in OutSmart as of September 13th. Both parties have decided to join forces to strengthen their international presence in the energy market and to offer more services in the field of wind energy.
Both OutSmart as TÜV NORD have the ambition to be leading in the international wind energy market. By using each other’s expertise, they come one step closer to achieving this ambition. TÜV NORD is a global provider of technical services in the fields of certification, inspection and site assessment. OutSmart is a specialist in managing and inspecting existing wind farms both on land and at sea and offers its services on project management for wind power projects. By combining the expertise of both organizations they offer a complete service package.
Developments in wind energy are rapidly occurring. The common knowledge and experience in the field of wind energy will allow clients to contact a reliable partner with a broad expertise. Management of both parties will remain unchanged, which means all knowledge can be retained and success can be expanded.
Kees Aling, regional manager of TÜV NORD : “We are delighted to have combined forces with OutSmart in the field of wind energy. As the current market is rapidly growing, the combination of expertise, robust processes and entrepreneurial customer orientation gives us an excellent basis to operate optimally for the international customer groups. Therefore TÜV NORD is increasing its activities in the Dutch wind energy market while TÜV Netherlands and Verebus already operate successfully in other industries.”
Founder and CEO of OutSmart Erwin Coolen is also very excited about this partnership. “OutSmart has project references in Europe, the US and China. Together with the competences of TÜV NORD’s global network we can realize more international projects. We have big plans to secure a leading position in the market and together with TÜV NORD we are one step closer to realizing this ambition.”
