Wind Energy

Industry Overview:

While the concept behind wind energy seems simple, implementation is very challenging. A wind turbine contains some 8,000 parts; manufacturing a turbine requires scientific insight from numerous disciplines. And that’s just one facet of this rapidly growing industry -- from financing and site-selection at one end to operation and management several years later.

Because so many issues are involved, wind energy companies need employees who work well with people from other disciplines: scientists, engineers, machinists, wind service technicians, transporters and more. They must look for ways to continue the trend toward lowering costs and deal effectively with government agencies.

Ropella knows many talented people in the industries that serve Wind Energy. Let us help you put them to work making Wind Energy even more successful and showing its value as a renewable resource.
