Modern Energy has experienced specialists who has served as wind and site experts in several turbine tender processes. In the turbine tender process it is important to engage expert from all disciplines to challenge the turbine supplier to consider all relevant aspects to ensure both the best value in the purchase and the best finalized product.
Examples of the parameters that fall on the wind and site discipline are:

- That the selected turbine configuration is appropriate for the site.
- That the production figures provided by the manufacturer are reasonable.
- That the technical description of the de-icing system and the promises of ice-loss reduction are credible.
