FT appoints Technical Support Manager in China
FT Technologies furthers its commitment to the burgeoning Chinese wind power industry by appointing Carrie Chen as Technical Support Manager. Based in Beijing, Ms Chen will provide technical service and advice to our Chinese distributors and end users.
Ms Chen brings with her nearly 10 years of experience in the wind energy sector in both technical support and quality management. She has an MSc in Computer System Engineering from the Technical Universtiy of Denmark, as well as a BA in Computer Science from the Northeast China Institute of Electric Power.
"Many of the wind parks here in China are located in remote areas where the turbines are not easily accessed. Reliability is therefore very important to this market," said Ms Chen. "The FT702LT wind sensor is small and tough and therefore ideal in extreme conditions. In China we have extremely low temperatures during the winter, and long, hot summers with high levels of humidity in the South East, and dry, dusty conditions in the North West. The FT702 has proved extremely reliable in these challenging conditions and I am delighted to be working with the preferred supplier of sensors within the Chinese wind industry."
Commenting on the appointment, Fred Squire, Director of Sales and Marketing for FT Technologies noted "We have teamed up with China Britain Business Council (CBBC) using its launchpad scheme to provide Carrie employment and office services. Her comprehensive understanding of wind sensors and their use on turbines will greatly benefit our distributors, their customers, and the end users in both the wind turbine and meteorological markets."
