Great at control

With more than 40 years of experience, and a market-leading position in their field, Mita-Teknik is a Danish family-run business that has gone global, bringing innovative systems and a local approach to the worldwide wind market.

Mita-Teknik has been developing control system solutions since 1969 and now employs around 230 people worldwide. With divisions in the Ukraine, U.S., India and China, Mita-Teknik is a global company, with the capability of acting locally almost anywhere in the world. The company prides itself on having a flat organizational structure, enabling them to offer a high degree of flexibility and reliability. The company has more than 40,000 control systems operating worldwide, and are able to deliver a complete control concept that covers the control of a single machine, plant and remote surveillance.

Historical background

In the late 70s, Mita-Teknik began using microprocessors in a new modular microprocessor system that was named CS (Computer System). The system turned out to be an important ingredient to the new era. In 1983, one of the company’s customers decided to produce a 22 kW wind turbine and wanted Mita-Teknik to deliver the control system. It became a great success and Mita-Teknik became the first company in the world to use serial communication in control systems. Other customers acknowledged the quality of the control system and soon the company became a sub-supplier to several Danish wind turbine manufacturers. As a result Mita-Teknik grew and soon found themselves in need of more space, and in 1985 decided to move their headquarters to Rødkærsbro in Denmark, where they still reside.

Mita-Teknik’s engagement in wind energy really took off when the Danish Wind Industry started exporting to the U.S. in the 1980s. Mita-Teknik changed their strategy accordingly to develop their control systems further and make export possible. The strategy was to export a complete control concept for wind turbines that made the wind turbines work perfectly. Germany and Sweden were the first countries to import these control systems and soon India followed.
