EU Offshore Wind Installation Rate Doubles as Siemens Leads Way

The installation rate of offshore wind turbines in Europe doubled in the first half of the year, with Siemens AG machines taking the bulk of the market.

A total of 1,045 megawatts of capacity of wind turbines were connected at sea, compared with 523.2 megawatts in the year-earlier period, the European Wind Energy Association said today in an e-mailed report. Siemens took 83 percent of that, followed by Bard Holding GmbH with 10 percent and Suzlon Energy Ltd.’s Repower unit on 7 percent.
