'Steep learning curve' at wind mega-project helps Enercon get set for hydrogen and the east

Nov 24, 2021

Senior executive says experience at huge Markbygden development means rebounding German OEM is well placed for likely gigawatt-scale opportunities elsewhere Related news 24 November 2021 14:21 GMT Updated  24 November 2021 14:21 GMT Enercon’s experience in helping build Europe’s largest onshore wind farm so far – the 1GW-plus Markbygden project in Sweden – will stand it in good stead as the market expands to embrace giant new opportunities in the east, some linked to green hydrogen, said a senior executive at the OEM. Germany-based Enercon had a role as developer as well as turbine supplier to parts of the massive Markbygden complex, which reached 1.1GW earlier this year . Uli Südhoff, head of central, north and eastern Europe at Enercon, said the project had left the company better placed to help deliver what are likely to be even larger multi-gigawatt developments as the European wind market evolves further. “There was a reason why we did that in Sweden. We proved what we could do,” Südhoff told Recharge at WindEurope's Electric City event in Copenhagen. “There were learning effects, [supplying turbines] but also EPC scope, civil works, balance of plant and bringing in external investors. We can also structure the offtake agreement.” “We had a steep learning curve in the Markbygden project. But we’re going to scale it to other countries, other projects.” Südhoff said with many markets in western Europe congested, eastern European markets such as Poland and Ukraine, and further afield central Asia, are likely to present large scale opportunities. Article continues below the advert “The green transition will only happen if we also look at markets where they have land availability. “When you look at the volume that’s going to be needed for hydrogen production, you’re looking at countries with space.” Südhoff added: “We need to diversify our portfolio, especially in eastern Europe, [which] is definitely a growth market for us – [nations there] don’t have the same densities as we do in Germany. “It’s about diversifying away from that over-reliance on the German region – quite a few of the German developers are working in those markets, but we’re also teaming up with local partners.” German pie getting bigger again Like other OEMs, Enercon has found the going tough in a German onshore wind market that in a few years shrank dramatically due to policy reversals – but has recently shown tentative signs of revival . Südhoff said: “The German market is still our largest market by far in Europe. The pie is getting bigger again, but there’s one bottleneck – permitting,” referring to the issue that has stalled onshore development in Germany and other markets. However, he added that the incoming German government is expected to show “a focus on renewables and onshore wind build out”.
