4th Wind Energy Day @AIMS-International


Vienna/ Cologne, May 3rd, 2012

AIMS International sponsors 4th Wind Energy NRW Industry Day to be held in Cologne in June 2012 and forms part of an HR Workshop which focuses “Talent in Wind”. Dutch and Flemish wind industry will be involved.

The central event of the wind industry in the sector’s most important supplier country, the Wind Energy NRW Industry Day, will be held next year at the Köln Congress-Centrum in Cologne on 21 and 22 June 2012. This was announced by the organiser, Lorenz Kommunikation.

Managing Director Klaus Lorenz explained that the next Industry Day would be extended to one and a half days instead of a day, for several reasons. “As suggested by a number of our key exhibitors and on grounds of the close cooperation of North Rhine-Westphalia with the Netherlands and Belgium, we have contacted the appropriate parties in our neighbouring countries to gauge their interest in a joint event for this future technology and have met with a positive response. This will be reflected in the programme and will also meet the urgent request of many visitors for an evening event that will allow more intense networking. Because the Wind Energy NRW Industry Day brings together the whole wind value chain.”

Held once again in close cooperation with the EnergieAgentur.NRW, the 4th Wind Energy NRW Industry Day in 2012 will focus on the Benelux countries but also, according to Lorenz, include topics defined by issues related to NRW’s energy policy, and take a look at the competitive position of locally based companies in the global market and the situation of operators.

The 3rd Wind Energy NRW Industry Day in May 2011 was used as a presentation platform by 87 companies from all over Germany. 460 visitors, who had also come from all over the country, made the day one of the main events in the industry.

The HR Workshop will have the following content:
