October 26 (Renewables Now) – German wind turbine maker Enercon GmbH today said it has recorded over 50 GW of installed wind turbine capacity globally, achieving a new milestone.
More specifically, the turbine manufacturer has crossed the 50-GW threshold earlier this month following the installation of 16 E-103 EP2 machines at a wind farm in Vietnam for eab New Energy GmbH. In total, it has installed more than 29,075 turbines with a combined capacity of 50,027MW.
“Nevertheless, the 50GW are still just an interim result for us. We are far from achieving our goal: climate change is not over, global energy demand is rising,” said sales manager Stefan Lutkemeyer. The German firm, which operates in over 45 countries, is in the process of expanding into new markets, according to the press release.
