Who we are

Senior engineers with passion for wind energy and new innovations

sowento - The Company

sowento is an independent engineering consultancy, technology advisor, and service provider for the wind energy industry. We are fully committed to accelerate innovation in wind energy and provide high quality results in our projects.  What makes us different is that we approach the topics as control engineers and with a clear systematic approach.  We aim at highest quality standards while keeping the flexibility of a smaller company.

sowento has its origin at Stuttgart Wind Energy (SWE) at the University of Stuttgart. As a spin-off the company was founded by David Schlipf, Florian Haizmann, Steffen Raach, Holger Fürst and Frank Lemmer in 2016 with the aim of providing advanced control solutions together with the latest simulation techniques to the wind industry.

Nowadays, sowento has a team of control, structural, and ocean engineers focusing on the different aspects of wind measurements, control, modeling and design, and coupled simulations of wind energy systems.
