Spares in Motion, the trading platform for the wind turbines aftermarket, will officially open its offices in India on March 8th 2016. The decision comes in support of the after-warranty market’s strong growth, that India is witnessing. The Indian wind market has been steadily growing since 1986, with a peak between 2010 and 2013. This caused more and more wind turbines to get out-of-warranty in recent years, sparking a major need of spares parts and maintenance services.
Managing the partnership in India will be Achal Kumar, who has years of experience in sales and business development, and comes from a family who has been pioneering the wind energy in India for the past 25 years. Kumar will locally help and support Indian manufacturers and suppliers in widening their target within India, and especially internationally, towards the ever-growing European market.
‘In the last year the number of Indian users who started using the Spares in Motion platform, doubled’, says a Spares in Motion representative, ‘that’s why we decided to support this growth and especially our users, by opening a local office in beautiful Chennai’.
