Just three months since its launch, Kenera has signed a licensing agreement with wind industry engineering specialist, windwise to manufacture wind turbines across Europe and Asia.
The agreement will see Kenera’s Germany-based technology provider, Bentec work in
partnership with windwise to build turbines using its unique maxcap technology.
Kenera is a new business unit within leading drilling, engineering and technology company
KCA Deutag. It expands the group’s offering in hydrocarbon and energy transition markets
and consolidates the skills, competencies and experience of the existing KCA Deutag group
with those of Bentec and RDS – its UK-based engineering and design specialist. Kenera has
three dedicated segments covering innovative services, technology & engineering and
manufacturing and is expected to be fully operational in Q4 2021.
Thorsten Dirks, Vice President of Kenera manufacturing and Managing Director of Bentec
commented: “This agreement is an important milestone in Kenera’s development, supporting
us in creating innovative technological solutions and allowing us to play an active role in the
energy transition. Combining more than 130 years of industry-leading expertise across our
group with successful partnerships, collaborative working and a customer-centric approach,
is key to delivering our strategic growth aspirations in the renewable energy space and
creating value for our stakeholders. We look forward to a successful, long-term working
relationship with windwise.”
Benno Sandmann, joint Managing Director of windwise added: “This agreement marks the
next chapter for windwise, following the development of maxcap technology. We are
delighted to work in partnership with the Kenera business and excited for the opportunities
