Danish COWI signs Ukrainian wind energy partnership deal

On 10 May, the Ukrainian Wind Energy Association (UWEA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Danish engineering and architecture consultancy, COWI to form a partnership for the development of onshore and offshore wind power in Ukraine’s post-war energy landscape.

The memorandum includes projects such as a legal gap analysis, a road map for wind energy development and an assessment of the country’s wind generation potential. In addition, the document envisages a local wind energy production pilot project: a small-scale pilot wind generation facility matching the needs of a small local community.

“I greatly appreciate willingness and readiness of COWI to contribute to post-war rebuilding of Ukraine. Cooperation with such globally recognised consultancy will help qualitatively rebuild our country and take wind technologies implementation to the next level,” said Andriy Konechenkov, Chairman of the UWEA Board.

Both sides will exchange relevant information and expertise, and work together on the identified priority projects, the UWEA said.

“It is a true pleasure having signed this Memorandum of Understanding with the UWEA. For two reasons. One: Wind power will, no doubt, play a major role in ensuring energy security in Ukraine, while at the same contributing to the phase out of green-house gases. Two: Together UWEA and COWI form a strong partnership capable of providing first class solutions in the field of wind power in Ukraine and, hence, supporting rebuilding Ukraine,” said Jesper Karup Pedersen, Chief Project Manager.
