Innovative products – Future-oriented company
ENERCON products are known for their innovative technology, outstanding reliability and excellent returns on investment, worldwide. With its tried and tested drive system, constant technological sophistication and high quality standards, the company has been setting benchmarks in the wind energy industry for more than 30 years now. Currently, the product catalogue includes turbines ranging from 800 kW to 4,200 kW. The German market leader has already installed more than 27,900 turbines worldwide with a total rated power of more than 46.9 gigawatts (10/2017).
ENERCON has been one of the technology leaders in the wind power sector for more than 30 years. As the first manufacturer of wind turbines, the company used a gearless drive concept that is a characteristic of all ENERCON wind turbines. ENERCON is also at the forefront in other areas, such as rotor blade design, control technology, grid connection technology, and, with its wide range of technological new developments, proves its innovative strength time and again.
Sophisticated drive technology
Continual research and development are guarantees of the ongoing success of the company. The same applies to production and service. All the key components, such as the rotor, annular generators and grid feeding system, are manufactured by exclusive suppliers. This ensures the high quality and extreme reliability of ENERCON wind turbines. A customer-oriented service offering also plays a part in this, guaranteeing the operator 97 % technical availability of the turbines. This holistic concept sets high new standards in technology, quality and safety and consolidates ENERCONs position as the German market leader.
ENERCON sets new benchmarks
The product portfolio comprises wind turbines with outputs from 800 to 4,200 kilowatts. The newest model is the E-141 EP4/4.2 MW with a rotor diameter of 141 meters. All ENERCON models boast reliable technology, low maintenance requirements and a long service life, thereby guaranteeing a high level of profitability for customers.
Compliance with latest grit code requirements
Thanks to the directly driven synchronous generator and innovative modular fullscale converter concept, ENERCON wind turbines have a wide range of technical options for adaption to the grid conditions. They have a grid feeding system that is certified to the latest grid connection requirements. ENERCON wind turbines can therefore be integrated without difficulty into all supply and distribution grid structures. Furthermore, ENERCON wind turbines supply numerous features that support the grid.
Energy for the world
True to the companys claim of “energy for the world”, ENERCON is driving forward supply with renewable energies worldwide and is also involved in areas of future technology such as energy storage, e-mobility, and smart grid solutions. In doing so ENERCON is expanding its worldwide activities in line with demand. Internationally, ENERCON has a presence with a global decentralized service and sales network in more than 45 countries.
ENERCONs prudent, sustainable growth strategy guarantees its stability. In autumn 2012, the founding of the Aloys Wobben Stiftung (Trust) sealed ENERCONs stability and independence as well as the continuity of its company direction. On 1 October, Aloys Wobben, company founder and owner, donated his shares of the company to the new foundation to cement the sustainable, future-oriented corporate strategy of ENERCON. Thus, beyond the quality and reliability of the turbine technology itself, ENERCON customers can rely upon a high level of investment security.
