Kassel, Germany-based CUBE Engineering GmbH, a provider of wind forecasting services based in Kassel, Germany, has formed CUBE Engineering America LLC. The subsidiary, which will be based in Palo Alto, Calif., will be headed by CUBE co-founder Jorg Beland. The company will offer services in all areas of wind farm projects in line with local requirements.
‘Until quite recently, the American market was very volatile and contingent on short-term political support schemes,’ says Beland. ‘Based on developments in the past year and the measures introduced by the new Obama administration at the beginning of 2009, we can expect a very stable period of rapid development in the coming years. We aim to be actively involved.’
CUBE has been involved in U.S. projects in the past, including the development of the 135 MW Judith Gap Wind Farm in Montana, which received an award from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
Stefan Chun will oversee and expand the core business in Europe along with the new markets in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, together with the Mediterranean countries.
