The installation division of Enercon Service Austria Gmbh and its dependent units will be closed at the end of 2017 — a plan has been drawn up with the works council, the company explained.
The Austrian service and maintenance division of the subsidiary will be expanded, however, to meet customer demands.
Fifteen of the installation division employees have already found other jobs.
The remaining affected employees and temporary workers have been offered options for work at other supplier or service companies for Enercon, even if they had been offered employment at other companies, it added.
"The significant fall in wind turbine installations in Austria since 2015 due to [a lack of] political decisions on the framework conditions for renewables has brought drastic changes for the whole branch," the firm said.
According to Windpower Intelligence, Austria installed roughly 147MW in 2016, and a further 107MW so far this year.
Enercon reiterated its long-term interest in Austria and in continuing activities within servicing, staff training and working with politicians in "taking Austria's Energiewende to the next level".
