“Freqcon is one of the leading engineering companies in its narrow area of expertise. Collaboration with Freqcon enables handling specific engineering problems we are not able to resolve using our own resources. Particularly, we are working on the projects for remote energy systems and with support of Freqcon’s team have an opportunity to select package solutions combining wind generation, solar generation, diesel generation, management systems and energy storage systems. We also collaborate in the search for the companies interested in wind turbine components production localization.
