Deutsche Windtechnik provides complete service for WTGs
Poland is one of the latest European countries to invest in renewable energy. Its first commercial wind farms were built in the early 2000s. Since then, its installed capacity has steadily grown to almost 1 GW. In 2015, the accumulation of green certificates and unfavourable legislative changes hit the country's wind industry hard.
By establishing the Polish business unit in 2013, which was a year of growth for wind energy, Deutsche Windtechnik positioned itself as the first provider to offer a high-quality, cost-effective, flexible alternative to service by the manufacturer in Poland. Close cooperation with customers regarding the exchange of information, experience and new service solutions resulted in contracts with international investors.
After a phase of stagnation, the country is now once again turning to renewable energy. The wind industry is expected to become a driving force for change, and offshore wind will play a leading role in this.
Deutsche Windtechnik has extensive experience both on land and at sea, and its expertise is combined with a unique ability to adapt to changing requirements. This enables the company to deliver solutions that fulfil real-world expectations.
ENGIE, as a leader in the energy transition, and the independent service provider Deutsche Windtechnik have expanded their Europe-wide cooperation for the maintenance of wind turbines in recent months, signing several new service contracts for wind turbines since the end of 2019.
Deutsche Windtechnik's Polish unit has added 21 Enercon E82 turbines to its full-service portfolio. The wind farm Kiesilice, located in the northern area of Warmian-Masurian, receives maintenance for a period of 20 years starting in January 2021 as part of a full-maintenance contract with Equitix, a UK-based asset owner.
The independent service provider Deutsche Windtechnik Sp. z o.o. and a joint venture of the Japanese electric utility J-POWER and the Japanese Mitsui Group have signed a contract extension for a total of 24 Vestas V80 wind turbines.
