Wind Industry Continues To Grow

According to the latest figures from, turnover and employment in the wind turbine industry continues to grow. Total revenue for 2015 was thus 2.9% higher compared to 2014, while employment surged by 3.8% in the same period.

According to the Danish Wind Industry Association, 2015 was the best year for business in the wind turbine industry since the financial crisis and both turnover and employment has increased.

The study from May 2016 shows that 31,251 is employed by the industry in 2015, which represents an increase of 3.8% from the year before, and thus the growth from the previous few years continues. In terms of revenue stream, the numbers are also going in the right direction. From a total turnover for the industry of 85.2 billion DKK. in 2014, we are now experiencing an increase of the amount of 87.9 billion. DKK in 2015. This is equivalent to an increase of 2.9%, and comparing it to the numbers from 2010, the revenue for 2015 is 17.2% higher.

When looking at the Danish export, it saw the Danish Wind Turbine industry decline in 2015, where the total exports compared to 2014 was 10.7% lower. The explanation probably lies in the development in the European wind market, which in 2015 had set record wind power capacity. Such an increase may have resulted in a decrease in the need for imports of Danish wind power at a European level. However, export in the wind turbine industry in Denmark is still more than half of total revenue (55%).

Wind Power storming ahead in Europe In terms of capacity, Denmark is among nine European countries with a capacity of over 5 GW of installed wind power, the latest statement from EWEA (European Wind Energy Association). In the same list, Germany is by far the top with almost 45 GW, almost double that of Spain, with 23 GW sits on the second largest capacity. In 2015 there was in Europe invested 26.4 billion. Euro in wind energy development. This represents, according to EWEA’s survey, an increase of 40% compared to 2014 and looked at offshore capacity alone, the increase from 2014 to 2015 is twice as large as the previous period. It is therefore not surprising that EWEA’s study also shows that the total wind power capacity in 2015 have overtaken hydropower as the continent’s third most common form of energy; though still behind regarding coal and gas.


Thomas Kastrup-Larsen

Parties from around the world interested in wind turbines were gathered Wednesday 4 March 2015 at Comwell Hotel Hvide Hus in Aalborg for the opening reception of the annual delegation trip prior to EWEA Offshore 2015.

Aalborg’s mayor Thomas Kastrup-Larsen opened the reception and welcomed the approximately 52 Danish and foreign guests, who for four days were visiting companies representing the top of the pop in the Danish wind turbine industry. The guests visited North Jutland companies such as Bladt Industries, the National Test Centre for Large Wind Turbines and Envision Energy, who are currently testing a two-blade wind turbine at the port of Thyborøn.

At the opening reception, the guests had the pleasure of meeting each other for the first time and despite the cultural differences, the room was buzzing when the guests chatted and networked with each other.

The opening reception was organized by Hub North who used the opportunity to promote the competences in North Jutland, the companies within the North Jutland wind turbine industry as well as the trade organization Danish Wind Industry Association, who organized the delegation trip.

A Milestone in the Danish Wind Industry

Danish Specialist’s high performance grout: Now in More Than 2000 Offshore Turbines
ITW Polymers Europe manufactures ultrahigh performance grout Ducorit® for special purposes such as offshore and onshore wind turbine foundations. At the end of May, the Ducorit® grout became a crucial structural component in turbine foundation no. 2000. This is considered a milestone for the Danish wind industry, which in later years has gained an important position in the international market.Læs mere

  • On-Shore Service and Maintenance

    Nov 8, 2016


    On 8 November, Hub North, Danish Wind Industry Association and Danmarks Vindmølleforening are hosting a conference on on-shore service and maintenance. Topics include exchange of major components, power upgrades, life extension, spare parts and other services. At the conference, there will also be a small exhibition.

    The goal of the conference itself and the exhibition is to bring turbine owners and suppliers closer together by bringing the knowledge from suppliers directly to turbine owners, and vice versa.

    In value chain terms, the conference will thus be focused on the period from the expiration of the manufacturer warranty to the decommissioning of the wind turbine.
