Netherlands-based wind turbine trading platform Spares in Motion has entered the North America market to match the rapidly increasing demand in the after-warranty market.

This expansion is in response to the increasing number of North American visitors using Spares in Motion, a business to business trading platform for the wind turbine industry that connects buyers and sellers for wind turbine spare parts, repairs, wind turbines and services.

To support this growth, Thomas Laursen has been appointed responsible for the company’s business development in North America.

Thomas is located in Massachusetts and has over 17 years of experience in the wind turbine sector and worked in various parts of the world like Denmark, China, Germany and USA. Thomas has previously worked for Vestas, Nordex and FloDesign in various management positions in the field of sales and technical support.

The installed base of wind turbines located in North America is maturing, as more and more turbines are running out of warranty.

A spokesman for Rotterdam-based Spares in Motion said: “The need for spare parts and the correct service provider to maintain these turbines is increasing. Why invest in your own stock if you know that the part is available on the market? Why not sell slow moving stock and turn money on the shelf into cash?”
