To date we have designed wind turbines that can be installed and operated in some of the most inhospitable places on the planet. With a design life span of well over 100 years, each turbine produced in our factory in Hamburg, on the River Elbe in Germany, is calibrated depending on where it will be installed and operated. With many installations offshore, we had to ensure that every turbine can generally take care of itself, for the duration of its life span, thus decreasing the necessity for servicing and maintenance in difficult and dangerous conditions, and also keeping periods of no operation to an absolute minimum. New materials have been developed to build extreme long life gear boxes capable of working every hour of every day for the life span of the turbine. Our wind turbines have been licensed to many different manufacturers around the globe, and offer a significant step forward towards our goal of carbon neutrality.
