AARHUS, Denmark: Vestas Wind systems will introduce a renewables aftermarket e-commerce platform later this year for buyers and sellers of parts and services.
Called ‘Covento’, the platform will eventually replace Vestas’ existing platform Shop.Vestas to support a broad range of renewable energy solutions and technologies by facilitating the supply and delivery of parts and services from third parties.
Vestas aims to transform a fragmented renewable aftermarket by creating a space for participants to connect and collaborate in order to build sector scale. This is expected to increase the value of the aftermarket industry, currently a multi-billion-euro segment of the renewable commercial landscape.
Philippe Delorme, Schneider Electric EVP Energy Management commented: “Congratulations to Vestas for pioneering with an ambitious new platform and business model that not only accelerates the reach for key players, but also ignites new levels of innovation for renewables aftermarket.”
Vestas currently has 120 GW of its onshore and offshore wind turbines under service in 85 countries.
