Sophisticated drive technology
Constant research and development are the key to the company’s continuing success, along with production and service. All the key components such as the rotor, the annular generator and the grid feed system are manufactured by reliable and highly-qualified certified suppliers. This ensures the high standard of quality and the outstanding reliability that are features of ENERCON wind energy converters. Another essential factor is the customer-oriented service, which guarantees operators and owners 97 % technical availability of their WECs. This holistic concept sets high standards in technology, quality and safety, thus consolidating ENERCON‘s position as one of the leading manufacturers of wind energy converters worldwide.
ENERCON sets new benchmarks
The product portfolio currently includes wind energy converters with power outputs ranging from 800 to 5,500 kilowatts. The latest addition is the E-160 EP5 wind energy converter with a rotor diameter of 160 metres. All ENERCON wind energy converter models are characterised by reliable technology, low maintenance and a long service life, and thus guarantee customers a high rate of return.
Compliance with latest grid code requirements
Thanks to their directly driven synchronous generator and the innovative and modular full-scale converter concept, ENERCON wind energy converters offer a wide spectrum of technical options for adapting to the grid conditions. This also includes a grid feed system certified to the latest grid codes, meaning ENERCON wind energy converters can be easily integrated into any supply and distribution grid structures.
Energy for the world
In keeping with the mission statement ‘Energy for the world’, ENERCON promotes renewable solutions for supplying power the whole world over. To support this, ENERCON is expanding its worldwide activities to meet demands. The company already has a decentralised service and sales network in over 45 countries internationally.
ENERCON’s independence was sealed when the Aloys Wobben Stiftung trust was established in autumn 2012. On 1 October, founder and owner of the company Aloys Wobben transferred his shares to the trust in order to set ENERCON’s sustainable and forward-looking business strategy in stone. As a result, high quality and reliable WEC technology are not the only things ENERCON‘s customers can count on – they can also be sure of a high level of investment security.
