He is joined by executive directors Martin Rambusch (CEO) and Jørgen Korsgaard Jensen (COO and founder), as well as non-executive directors Simon Barrell, Johan Blach Petersen and Niels Vejrup Carlsen.

Martin Rambusch, Windar’s CEO, commented: “Windar’s admission to trading on AIM is another milestone in the Company’s journey. Admission to AIM raises the profile of the Company and its cost effective and innovative WindEye™ Sensor product, which both improves efficiency and prolongs the life of wind turbines, and provides a great platform for the future growth of the business. The Windar team is looking forward to continuing the success story and to building our presence on AIM.”
