For 30 years, ENERCON has been among the technology leaders of the wind energy industry. In 1993 the company was the first manufacturer of wind energy converters to rely on a gearless drive design, which today is the hallmark of all ENERCON wind energy converters. A degree of vertical integration that is unparalleled in the wind energy industry ensures the high quality level and the reliability of ENERCON wind energy converters. Customer-oriented service that guarantees operators/owners 97% technical availability of their WECs also adds to this. Today, ENERCON’s product range comprises WECs starting at 800 kW all the way up to 4,200 kW. The latest WEC type is the E-141 with 4,200 kW rated power and a rotor diameter of 141 metres. In keeping with its mission statement of “Energy for the World”, ENERCON has so far installed more than 25,000 WECs with a total power of more than 40 GW throughout the world (as of December 2015).
