Five years of independent, multi-brand wind services in Sweden: Deutsche Windtechnik offers wind farm owners a real alternative

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. Key pillars of this successful development include the competence centres run by Europe’s largest ISP and the multi-brand approach, which allows Nordic operators to benefit in a variety of ways.

ISP offers alternatives for wind farm owners
Five years after its foundation, the Swedish unit of Deutsche Windtechnik boasts an exceptionally positive résumé: 300 wind turbines, performance of services for five system technologies and 36 employees. Contracts for further 29 turbines were signed, service to be started in 2022. Managing Director Linus Sturesson said: “We are proud of and grateful for our strong and sustainable growth over the last five years, which has only been possible thanks to our great partnership with our customers. We all see great untapped potential in the renewable energy sector in the Nordic countries.” The rising demand for renewable energy sources has had a great impact on the established service structures of the wind industry, which was previously dominated for a long time by large manufacturers. Deutsche Windtechnik’s entry into the market in 2016 as the first real ISP in the Nordic region has created a competitive situation that forces all providers to offer attractive contracts in terms of costs, quality and the service portfolio.

Multi-brand approach offers benefits
Deutsche Windtechnik’s proven multi-brand technology expertise in particular creates high-quality solutions for the maintenance and repair of wind turbines. Linus Sturesson emphasised: “Our major advantage is that we cooperate closely with our experienced technical competence centres within the company.” The wind farms are part of a service infrastructure spanning eight existing service locations

Service covering every aspect of wind farm operation
Although Deutsche Windtechnik is specialised in the maintenance and repair of wind turbines, the range of services offered by the ISP is much broader. In addition to maintenance, repair and technical support for customers, Deutsche Windtechnik AB also offers certified expert reports, QHSE and consulting services.
