About us

Kitemill is a technology company that will revolutionize the wind power industry. The company's mission is to accelerate the transition towards a zero-emission energy sector for the next generation by strengthening AWE technology to harvest stronger and more stable winds, in turn improving cost efficiency and drastically reducing the use of raw material.

Employees are the company's most important resource, and Kitemill now has a carefully selected team of international experts. With the acquisition of UK-based KPS and Netherlands-based eKite, the team has expanded and become more international
