LELYSTAD / FRANEKER – Iver has announced a new partnership with Solvento, service specialist in the Spanish wind energy market. Solvento has joined the Iver Group in the summer of 2022 and will continue under the name Iver (Spain). This partnership strengthens Iver’s presence throughout Europe, to achieve the company’s shared vision: working with the leaders of the energy transition to realise their sustainable mission.
Solvento was founded in 2009 in Zaragoza, Spain, by two entrepreneurial wind experts. The past thirteen years, it has grown into a medium-sized Independent Service Provider (ISP) in the wind sector. With a team of over 50 technicians, Solvento offers services focused on maximum performance and minimum downtime of wind turbines. Among its services are maintenance and inspection, assembly and disassembly and the improvement of products and other customized solutions for renewable energy sources. Solvento operates internationally, serving customers in Spain, Italy and Poland.
From now on, Solvento will continue as Iver (Spain). This partnership marks the first step towards European expansion and is based on an evident synergy between both companies, in services as well as in values. By increasing capacity, more technical knowledge and experience can be exchanged to optimise and expand services. This makes an impact on a large scale: technical staff can support each other and be more broadly deployed, and customers will notice a growth in possibilities working with Iver.
Sjoerd Bartlema, CEO of Iver: “In the past year, we have put a lot of effort into our growth, which is necessary to keep fulfilling the increasingly complex market demand. First with the merger of Certion and F&B Group, and later with the partnership of Mocotech. The partnership with Solvento strengthens our proposition towards the European market. Miguel Corral Iranzo and I have known each other for years and understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses. Our companies share the ambition to stay ahead. The energy transition is now. It’s time to make an impact together.”
Miguel Corral Iranzo, co-founder and CEO of Solvento: “I am very pleased with the partnership we have created with Iver; a very professional ISP, with a lot of attention going to the organization and its people. This is a piece of DNA we share. In addition, we are much stronger together: we have increased our capacity to continue to meet customer demand, and can offer our customers more guarantees and better service. We are looking forward to entering this new growth phase together.”
Klaas Meindertsma, CFO at Iver: “Miguel Corral Iranzo is a strong pillar and asset for our organization in Spain; in addition to a wonderful company, he has set up an organization that has an eye for its own people. By joining forces we can also offer our employees more perspective, in sharing and multiplying knowledge and in doing even more challenging projects.”
Iver now employs over 125 experts in wind, who are deployable in The Netherlands, Spain and the rest of Europe. Solvento’s team will continue to operate autonomously, Miguel Corral Iranzo will continue to lead the Spanish entity. The Dutch team is headed by Sjoerd Bartlema (CEO) and Klaas Meindertsma (CFO).
