Important for Kitemill
UMOE Mandal’s geographical location close to Kitemill’s workshops and test site at Lista makes it attractive to receive production support. Sture Smidt, who is responsible for the kite development at Kitemill says: “The cooperation of producing a small series of kite airframes is a rather small in UMOE Mandal’s measurement. But it will allow Kitemill to move crucial personnel resources to more critical processes. The kites will be used to bring Kitemill’s turbines into continuous operation”.
