NRG Systems, a manufacturer of measurement systems for the renewable energy industry, says it will invest in Oenko, a manufacturer and installer of lattice towers for wind resource assessment and wind farm monitoring.
Based in Thetford Mines, Quebec, Oenko designs and manufactures lattice towers ranging from 30 meters to 120 meters for all types of project sizes and locations, specializing in extreme arctic conditions. NRG Systems, based in Vermont, pioneered complete measurement systems with tubular tilt-up towers in the 1980s.
NRG Systems says Oenko's line of lattice towers complements NRG's existing tower offerings, as well as gives customers more choices.
As a result of the investment, NRG Systems will hold a majority interest in Oenko. Manufacturing will remain in its current location, with Oenko's existing workforce, and Guy Fortin will continue in his role as president and key sales person for Oenko.
