Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

Leunamme has a completed prototype, tested in operational environments, which also is protected by patent worldwide. The use of the Well system will generate significant environmental impacts. The company hopes a significant high level sales due to the technical and economic competitiveness of the system . On the other hand, the company plans to create 11 jobs directly and 40 indirectly.

Emmanuel expects to demonstrate that Leunamme Engineering will soon be an internationally recognized company within the field of technology, innovation and services for O&M in the wind energy sector, and will have generated a significant number of jobs, as well as important economic surpluses.
