Helsinki, Finland , May 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Caverion acquires Wind Controller, a Finnish service company in the wind industry

Caverion today entered into an agreement to acquire the shares of Finnish service company Wind Controller (“WiCo”). WiCo is the leading technical consultant and service provider for the Finnish wind industry. Its customer base includes turbine suppliers and wind farm owners, operators and developers. By entering the wind power segment, Caverion is expanding its offer in the energy sector.

We are pleased to be able to support our customers even better in the ongoing energy transition and to welcome new experts who join us.
