Growth: Wpd Windmanager Manages More Than 5,000 MW of Wind Farm Capacity

Bremen, Germany - The Wpd Windmanager GmbH & Co. KG AUS Bremen continues to push the expansion of its business activities with new locations, new target markets and new services.

In 2020, the Bremen-based specialist for the operational management of wind energy and solar projects will be expanding its locations by five additional offices - two nationally in Erkelenz and Bremerhaven, three more internationally in Spain, Chile and Sweden. According to managing director Nils Brümmer, the company now manages 513 wind farms worldwide with 2,445 wind turbines and a total output of 5,259 megawatts. "This makes us not only the market leader in Germany, but also one of the major players internationally in the field of operational management," Brümmer said.

This year, three new target markets with large volumes will be added in parallel at international level. With 71 MW in Sweden, 177 MW in Spain and 370 MW in Chile, the international portfolio in plant management is set to grow to almost 2 gigawatts. Wpd Windmanager is also expanding nationally. Through the integration of psm Nature Power Service & Management GmbH & Co. KG with more than 60 employees, the new wpd windmanager competence center for photovoltaics and continued operation was created in Erkelenz. The goal is to offer customers operational management of wind farms and also solar farms from one source. After the new location in Erkelenz, Wpd Windmanager also opened a new office in Bremerhaven in the middle of this year.

In addition to the wind farms from the pipeline of wpd AG, wpd windmanager is taking over more and more operational management projects from external investors. Thanks to its size, know-how and the different target markets, Wpd Windmanager is an interesting partner for many internationally oriented wind farm operators - for example, to gain a foothold in a new market or to receive cross-national support for the entire portfolio, says Till Schorer, Director Sales at Wpd Windmanager. In the last two years alone, Wpd Windmanager was able to acquire around 225 MW via external projects, with a rising trend.
