Enercon share of German market shrinks

GERMANY: German manufacturer Enercon accounted for roughly 43% of the total 3GW of new installed onshore wind capacity in Germany in 2013, as opposed to 56% in 2012. (updated 3 February)

"Enercon is continuing its stable course with installations in Germany in 2013 on the same level as in 2011 and 2012," the company said 31 January 2014. Its additions last year were thus around 1.2-1.4GW.

In 2013, Germany installed 3GW onshore as opposed to 2.3GW in 2012.

Enercon declined to comment on expectations for 2014.

Two smaller Germany-based turbine manufacturers Indian-owned Senvion and Nordex accounted for 485.85 MW and 251MW respectively of the 3000MW of onshore wind installed in Germany in 2013.

With their 16% and 8.4% respective shares, they accounted for one quarter of the new build in a market traditionally dominated by Enercon and Vestas.

Senvion said it expects to hold its market share steady in Germany in 2014, "also with an overall lower expected level of installations," it said.

With their 23% and 8.4% respective shares, they accounted for nearly one third of the new build in a market traditionally dominated by Enercon and Vestas.

Second-placed Vestas declined to name its share of the market, although it is believed to be around 15%.

Senvion expects to hold its market share steady in Germany in 2014, "also with an overall lower expected level of installations," it said today.

Nordex expects growing installation numbers in Germany in 2014. "We have been anticipating this trend for quite some time now because uncertainty surrounding future tariff structures in Germany is triggering pull-forward effects," the company said on 31st January 2014.
