Consortium

SmartWind is a well-balanced industry-led consortium from both ICT (ISOTROL, ENFORMA and NETAŞ), and O&M wind (ZORLU ENERJİ) complemented with partners from the academia and technology centres (RUB and TECNALIA).

Industrial partners, in particular, are focused on a near to market project, expecting to see pragmatic results and interim products and software releases even before the end of the complete cycle of the 36-month project.

The very existence of RTOs such as TECNALIA and RUB as well as an experienced (in the very field of renewables) company ISOTROL will assist the whole consortium to analyse the current state, quickly get to the SoA and lift the stage up beyond the SoA as well. A summary of the partners’ role and its core business are presented in the next table:
