In Råmmarehemmet in Tidaholm municipality, EnBW Sverige AB has built its first greenfield wind farm from scratch. It consists of three wind turbines with a hub height of 111 m and a total height of 180 m on site. The total output of around 12,6 megawatts. The wind farm is placed into operation during July 2021.
With a workforce of more than 21,000 employees, EnBW is one of the largest energy supply companies in Germany and Europe, providing energy and sustainable solutions to around 5.5 million customers.
We are resolutely pushing forward the expansion of renewable energies and are already a driving force behind the Energiewende in Germany – the transition of the German energy system to renewable and sustainable energy sources. We offer the planning, construction, operation, maintenance, servicing and direct distribution of wind farms from one source.
The aim of the EnBW strategy is to increase the proportion of our generation portfolio accounted for by renewable energies to over 40 per cent by 2020 (2017: 26 per cent). We view ourselves as a driving force for ecological change under the motto “Energiewende. Safe. Hands on.”
In the expansion of its wind activities, EnBW is also focusing on selective internationalisation in order to complement its core market of Germany. As such, the company has now expanded its engagement in the wind energy sector to include the Swedish market by founding EnBW Sverige AB.
The Swedish wind market is one of the key European markets for the expansion of onshore wind energy. In order to also make a contribution to the expansion of renewable energies here, EnBW is entering the Swedish market as an experienced project developer and operator of wind power plants, complete with its own team.
EnBW Sverige AB is based in Falkenberg, in Halland. EnBW’s subsidiary, the service provider Connected Wind Services (CWS), (add link) has already represented EnBW there since 2016. CWS is one of the leading companies in Sweden for the manufacturer-independent servicing and maintenance of wind power plants.
