Bunderhee, 18.12.2018. The East Frisian ENOVA Group can look back on a financial successful year 2018. For example, the wind energy specialist has acquired stakes in onshore and offshore wind farms with a total output of 70 megawatts via the network company ENOVA IPP. In August 2018, ENOVA IPP and EWE ERNEUERBARE ENERGIEN GmbH, took over the 12-MW Windpark Hohegaste. EWE and ENOVA share the technical and commercial tasks in the operation of the wind farm.
Project successes in repowering and technical operation management
After a successful repowering in January 2018, ENOVA Energiesysteme commissioned the WPP Sanden in Ostfriesland. From mid-March to October, the repowering and scheduled commissioning of the Düddingen wind farm took place, which has a 50 percent higher output now. “In addition, we are steadily expanding our portfolio of wind farms, where we provide services related to asset management, such as technical operations management,” elaborates Managing Director Hauke Brümmer. In 2018, ENOVA took over 43 EWE WPP. The total portfolio of managed WPP comprise more than 250 megawatts. The technical management will offer further services such as Big Data evaluations and condition monitoring solutions in 2019.
Manufacturer-independent service provider maintains more than 50 wind turbines.
At the turn of the year ENOVA Service, founded in 2017, will handle a portfolio of 100 megawatts. In the second half of 2018, the manufacturer-independent service provider started maintaining 16 further wind turbines. In July 2018, the complex rectification of a major component damage was achieved: during the repair of a defective powertrain, the service specialists first exchanged only the main bearings and repaired the defective axle journal without replacing the entire hub.
