As a company in the renewable energy sector, BayWa r.e. will be represented at the world's leading expo for wind power, with a stand at this year's WindEnergy Hamburg (Germany). From 27th to 30th September, the company will showcase its extensive portfolio of services for the wind energy sector at Stand 532 in Hall B7.
BayWa r.e. is active around the world as a specialist in the development, engineering, funding, turnkey construction and operations management wind energy plants. To date, the company has completed wind farm projects with a total installed capacity of significantly above 1GW.
"The fact that we are so successful in the increasingly competitive wind energy sector is down to our close proximity to the customer on the one hand, and our ability to respond and adapt our service portfolio quickly to changing circumstances, on the other. We have 25 years of experience in this sector to rely on, as well as our technical expertise and high quality standards, all of which make us ideally equipped to face the challenges of the future," explained Matthias Taft, Board Member of BayWa AG, responsible for the energy business.
In Europe, BayWa r.e. was recently able to add to its already impressive statistics, with the successful sale of the French St. Congard wind farm and Obernwohlde wind farm in Northern Germany
Wind energy – a joint venture
"In order to further consolidate our competitive edge, we never stop making improvements to our extensive range of full services. Alongside our own projects, we are currently working intensively on models relating to the assumption of risk and project acquisition. This will allow us to provide optimum support to our partners in the German market when bringing wind energy projects to fruition, once the Renewable Energy Sources Act is amended in 2017," explained Matthias Taft.
As an EPC service provider, BayWa r.e. offers project developers, public utilities and community wind farms a range of models which can be customised to suit their individual requirements.
International service – round the clock
Furthermore, BayWa r.e.'s business activities include the technical and commercial operations management of numerous wind and solar projects around the world. With an international outlook and a control room that is manned around the clock, the company provides comprehensive services from one source – from monitoring to operations management, right through to financial management. With the acquisition of Italian O&M service provider Kenergia in June 2016, BayWa r.e. was able to cross the 2000MW mark for the first time in terms of total output managed.
In addition, the range of services the company offers in the wind energy sector includes the comprehensive service and maintenance of rotor blades, regardless of manufacturer. Last but not least, this business area also encompasses energy trading of renewable power, the supply of green power, and technical consultation and engineering services.
