Wind Turbine Design
At Nextwind we believe in customizing each project to best utilize our customer’s strengths. Therefore there is no one-size-fits-all license and we strive to tailor each project for mutual benefit. We also view a license arrangement as a long term relationship, in which all parties profit through cooperation and open discussion. The advantages of a Nextwind license include lower total development costs, shorter time to market (1 to 2 years advantage), and lower technical and schedule risk. Nextwind supports the project through all phases including supply chain, prototype assembly and test, type certification, and production start-up.
Turn-Key Approach: For customers with limited engineering resources and know-how, Nextwind can provide a turnkey manufacturing and assembly package. Nextwind delivers the design documentation at pre-defined milestones, and clients’ engineers are offered training on the technology. The license fee is divided and a percentage is due with each milestone. Nextwind offers regional exclusivity for the license, retaining the rights for selling the same or similar designs in other markets.
Collaborative Design Approach: For customers with in house engineering resources, Nextwind offers a collaborative approach. With this approach, client’s engineers are integrated into the design process from the beginning. In this way, client’s engineers will have first-hand understanding of the design decisions, component integration, and design customization. Client will also gain greater insight and control over project progress.
