Selling Denmark's silicon valley to conference attendees

Visits from representatives of regional governments, eagerly expounding the virtues of their particular location for setting up product manufacture, have become a common feature of wind exhibitions. Some regions, such as Northwest England, even display their virtues on an exhibition stand. The target, more often than not, has been Danish companies ready to spread their wings overseas. At EWEC 2006 in Athens, however, it was Denmark walking the boards in the hope of attracting companies to its shores. "Looking to set up facilities with access to a large competence pool?" asked Invest in Denmark, a division of the foreign affairs ministry. "Have a look at Denmark!" Jan Koch, from Invest in Denmark's European liaison office at the Danish embassy in Paris, points to Suzlon, Siemens and Garrad Hassan as examples of established wind companies that have chosen a location in Denmark because they want access to the Danish skills base. "We keep the knowledge and the know-how in Denmark and therefore our position as a leader in the world market," he said at EWEC 2006.
