Deutsche Windtechnik opens up the market and offers alternatives
In 2016, Deutsche Windtechnik opened a unit in Varberg, Sweden, and since then it has grown at a steady pace. Sweden's special climatic conditions, long distances between wind farms and low remuneration for wind power owners meant that there was a need for new maintenance and service concepts. Today, we offer cost-effective, high-quality service alternatives for all of Scandinavia.
An independent service provider
The independent service partner Deutsche Windtechnik provides innovative, reliable maintenance to ensure high availability and make wind power ownership more flexible. We are constantly working to optimise our service: technically, economically and environmentally. Our close cooperation with Deutsche Windtechnik in Germany makes it possible to effectively overcome all technical challenges posed by the country's special weather and geographical conditions. Wind turbines are connected and continuously monitored via remote diagnostic systems. This makes it possible to detect problems immediately and remedy them quickly. Our extensive centralised spare parts warehouse covers all brands we have under service agreements, thereby ensuring short lead times and high availability.
Knowledge, quality and experience
Our technicians regularly receive training from our international experts at our own training facility in Germany, and this creates an open, transparent environment that promotes innovation. This leads to new solutions and developments that benefit both you as a customer as well as the environment we operate in.
We offer flexible agreements that range from basic to full-service, and this enables us to provide solutions that are tailored to your wind power portfolio. Currently, 80% of all wind turbines maintained by Deutsche Windtechnik AB are covered by full-service agreements. The portfolio includes turbines manufactured by Vestas, Enercon, Siemens, Gamesa and Nordex.
The Swedish unit of Deutsche Windtechnik is celebrating its five-year anniversary. As an active driver of the energy transition towards renewables, the unit based in Varberg has seen tremendous growth since it opened for business in 2016.
The wind energy market in Sweden is very dynamic. Wind energy has proved to be one of the energy source that can be built the fastest and at the lowest price, making it possible to achieve the energy transition by 2040. Approximately 20 percent of Swedish electricity currently comes from wind energy, and the trend is rising. As the number of turbines has increased, so has the need for maintenance that is high-quality but still has a lower cost.
Deutsche Windtechnik's Swedish unit has expanded its portfolio and signed a technical support agreement that includes twelve Nordex turbines in Finland, setting a new milestone with a total of over 200 wind turbines under service contract. Between January 2020 until now, the Swedish unit achieved a growth of 42 percent.
