Between September and October 2021, Kitepower is going to be deployed in the Dutch Defence's training area near Vader Piet on the island of Aruba, with the goal to test the system in an operational environment as part of the military exercise Caribbean Engineer 2021.
Kitepower's operations in Goeree-Overflakkee will advance thanks to the recent obtainment of an "All-in-one Permit for Physical Aspects" (omgevingsvergunning).
Dromec is a key development partner of Kitepower since day one, when in 2015, the Dutch company has joined the mission to develop the first commercial Airborne Wind Energy System (AWES).
The decade we just entered is going to be the decade where every day will be crucial in deciding what the future will look like. In other words, this must be the decade when all investments and subsidies allocated to fossil fuel exploration and extraction end, this must be the decade when humanity completely divests and emancipates from fossil fuels.
