Deutsche Windtechnik opens up the market and offers alternatives
In a large country like Sweden, which has special climatic conditions, very low remuneration for operators and long distances between wind farms, there is a demand for new maintenance and service concepts. By establishing its Swedish business unit in Varberg in 2016, Deutsche Windtechnik rose to the challenge and now offers the very first high-quality, cost-effective alternative to service by the manufacturer in Scandinavia. Currently, half of the wind turbines in Deutsche Windtechnik's care are covered by full maintenance contracts. The portfolio includes turbines manufactured by Vestas/NEG Micon, Siemens/AN Bonus, Gamesa and Enercon.
Close cooperation with Deutsche Windtechnik in Germany makes it possible to master the technical challenges that result from the special weather and geographical conditions of the country. Problems are detected using remote diagnostics, and solutions are developed jointly and implemented by local or international teams of experts from the corporate group, depending on the requirements. The Swedish team is growing steadily, thanks to the increasing number of maintenance contracts.
The independent maintenance provider Deutsche Windtechnik is further expanding its service portfolio and has signed a contract to provide full maintenance for eight Siemens SWT 2,3 DD wind turbines at the Gunnarby wind farm in Sweden.
The Swedish unit of Deutsche Windtechnik and the Swedish project developer for renewable energy Rabbalshede Kraft have signed a full service contract for the wind farm Dingelskogen Vind AB. The agreement covers 14 Enercon E82 turbines and has a term of 14 years. Service will begin on 6 November 2019.
Although wind energy is booming, low remuneration for operators, special climatic conditions and long distances between wind farms have created a steady demand for new, cost-sensitive maintenance concepts in Sweden. ISPs (Independent Service Providers) with their high-quality, flexible services have increasingly become a fixture in the market. Deutsche Windtechnik is on the cutting edge of these developments.
We are happy to work with Deutsche Windtechnik. The company stands out with flexibility, on-time reactions and pro-customer approach. We surely recommend them as a reliable contractor.
Deutsche Windtechnik has given an honest impression and have showed us that they intend to be long-term partner to the wind power owners in Sweden.
