|January - February
I am putting up a small office room in Germany to be more flexible, and also for private reasons.
I reached the age for early retirement and now slip into a part-time pension (some work, some pension).
An unlucky injury demanded some time of hospital and recovery.
|March - April
Occasional work for Ming Yang, additionally some smaller jobs for European companies.
|May - August
Living and working in Germany. One larger job here is now finished.
The China-cooperation has finally run out.
A non-wind activity is still going on.
|September - October
I was informed that the 5,5MW offshore wind turbine which I had taken care of,
has achieved an availability of over 98% right away.
Hundreds of details I had handled and pushed towards correct solutions
in half a year of regular meetings with designers and workshop.
This feedback confirms my headline "I have the knowhow to make wind turbines run".
|November - December
Bearing this success happily in mind, I am closing down FUTURE POWER OY.
The situation of wind power has changed.
The worldwide concentration process and ruinous dumping in fierce competition
has led to massive lay-offs.
The fake news of "price reduction due to technology" is generally and wrongly believed.
Fact is that the presently sold machines do not yet contain any of the far-future advanced technology,
from which an economy improvement is hoped to come from.
In the desperate world-wide struggle for survival of a whole branch,
there is no more value in know-how, experience and engineering.
Money, lobby-work and energy politics rule.
I herewith close down my wind power activities after 37 years and go into retirement.
