Vestas came in second place, clocking up 24.2%. Repower came third with 11%, followed by Nordex with 3.7%, e.n.o. with 1.5% and Vensys with 1.1%.

Major companies Siemens and GE don't figure in the 2012 onshore wind installations, being completely subsumed in the 1.7% "other" category.

In future, Siemens will start to build a profile in German wind thanks to upcoming offshore projects using its turbine technology.

In 2011, Enercon had accounted for around 60% of the 2,007MW installed, Vestas taking 21% of the market. These statistics including 200MW of offshore wind.

Repower and Nordex followed with 9.7% and 3.9% respectively in 2011. The Bard group accounted for 2.1% with its offshore installations. Siemens Wind Power and GE Wind were insignificant in the German market in 2011.
