Information technology (IT) and outsourcing company Mindtree has signed a five-year digital transformation deal with German wind turbine manufacturer, the Nordex Group.

Under the contract, the Bengaluru-based firm said it will serve as Nordex’s business partner and modernise the latter’s IT infrastructure for operations and service delivery, while ensuring scalability to support future growth.

The work will include standardisation and roll out of new projects and operational processes, consolidation of existing IT services, and the development of a future-ready cloud platform to ensure robust cybersecurity, Venu Lambu, executive director and president of global markets at Mindtree, said in a statement. 

Founded in 1985, the Nordex Group supplies wind turbines to nearly all geographical regions across the globe. The group has a global headcount of nearly 8,000 employees and has installed wind power capacity of more than 30 GW in over 40 markets.

Commenting on the deal, Stefan Ewald, CIO of the Nordex Group, said, “Demand for wind power will continue to grow globally and so will Nordex. Delivering to our expanding international customer base reliably and securely will require standardisation and simplification of our underlying systems. We will design a scalable digital architecture that enables us to deliver with speed and agility.”

As for Mindtree, the digital acceleration partnership comes nearly two months after it inked a deal to migrate Gothenburg-based medical device manufacturer Mölnlycke Health Care’s on-premises SAP applications to Microsoft Azure. 

In July, the mid-tier IT services firm partnered with outdoor power products maker Husqvarna Group to advance its digital transformation initiatives.
