It was a long time coming but the Bangladesh trip is a reality after almost four years of planning and preparations.

CEO Ulrich Høgenhaven and head of sales and projects Pia Jakobsen have just returned from a very successful visit to Bangladesh. A very closely planned visit with years of planning and preparations behind it.

Now the trip has gone well, it’s time to reflect upon the multiple experiences and impressions achieved on the trip.

“It’s been a very exciting trip with various new impressions. There has been shown a great deal of interest in our new turbine, which initially has been designed for markets like this. We have met many passionate people with interest in sustainable energy solutions as we offer” says the head of sales and projects, Pia Jakobsen.

The trip has been interspersed with experiences and impressions. The agenda has been packed with various substantial and worthwhile meetings, which gave the people from Viking Wind ample opportunities to present the turbine and talk about green energy, sustainability and how to secure the earth for future generations.

Samina Shahrukh, senior trade advisor and Jacob Kahl Jepsen, commercial counsellor and head of trade from the Danish Embassy in Bangladesh have been excellent hosts and very well prepared for the meeting with the delegation from Viking Wind.

Bangladesh is already well ahead in the process of changing to using less fossil fuel -both in the industrial area but also in private smalls and has turned the focus towards more sustainable energy solutions like wind energy, which in turn has led to positive interest for the solutions Viking Wind has to offer.

“The trip has been both exciting and beneficial. we even experienced a 5.5. magnitude earthquake on the front row, which may be in hindsight made the trip a little bit too exciting, but also was very enlightening for what a wind turbine in Bangladesh, must be able to withstand.” Says Ulrich Høgenhaven, CEO Viking Wind
