Sany’s top management for renewables in Europe, Richard Deng, visited Seabrokers House this week with a main focus on renewable energy within offshore wind. Sany, which is today one of the world’s 10 largest manufacturers of wind turbines, has until now had the main focus on land-based wind power in America and the East.

With the investment in wind power that is now being made in Europe and Norway, Sany together with the Seabrokers Group have great ambitions for joint development in wind power in the North Sea.

The companies possess unique knowledge and experience that complement each other in several areas.

The breadth of the Seabrokers Group has been very interesting for Sany, and especially with Seabrokers Chartering as the largest player in shipbroking in the North Sea today. For over 40 years, the company has built up a unique collaboration with both operating companies and the supplier industry, which is seen as particularly important in the work for new solutions in the North Sea basin.

Today, Seabrokers Havnekraner is a Sany importer of electric cranes, electric construction machines and goods handling equipment, and there are several ongoing collaboration projects for new solutions here as well.

Sany has a number of offshore wind turbines in testing today, and in the long term Sany and Seabrokers Group will be able to deliver complete solutions for offshore wind.

Other investment areas that are interesting through the collaboration are hydrogen production, sustainable investments and further development in training facilities for the workforce of the future. Sany showed great interest in the Nordics’ only training center for wind turbine operators in Egersund Næringspark, where Egersund Energy Hub presented collaboration between suppliers and academia that can contribute to more synergies.
