Tour Included Meeting with Governor Doyle and Survey of Potential Wind Development Sites
Sun Prairie, Wis. – Wave Wind, LLC, a leading wind energy service provider, recently hosted Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), a global leader in industrial manufacturing, on a business development tour of Wisconsin. The tour, which was arranged by Wave Wind following its recent agreement to purchase six 1.65 MW wind turbines from HHI, featured a visit with Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle, meetings with other leading Wisconsin businesses, and a survey of potential wind development sites in the state.
Wave Wind’s partnership with HHI is evidence that Wisconsin’s commitment to becoming a leading center for renewable energy manufacturing, services, and job creation is beginning to yield tangible benefits. Wave Wind viewed HHI’s visit as an opportunity to support this commitment.
To that end, HHI’s tour of Wisconsin included a meeting hosted by Governor Doyle during which the Governor promoted Wisconsin’s physical, geographic, and human resources and reiterated his commitment to creating new, high-paying renewable energy jobs. It also included a tour of Wave Wind’s operations and wind turbine storage facilities as well as a tour of potential wind development sites currently being evaluated by Wave Wind.
“At Wave Wind, we are strong supporters of what Governor Doyle has done to promote Wisconsin as a great place to invest and do business,” said Tim Laughlin, President of Wave Wind. “HHI’s visit to our state was an opportunity for us to contribute to what we believe is a very bright future for renewable energy in Wisconsin.”
