Enercon GmbHbased in AurichLower SaxonyGermanyis the fourth-largest wind turbine manufacturer in the world and has been the market leader in Germany since the mid-nineties.

In EnercinEnercon announced that they would be setting up Irish headquarters in Tralee. Enercon wind turbines have some special technical features compared to turbines of most other wind turbine manufacturers. Characteristic is the gearless propulsion concept, on which Enercon has pioneered this technology since Earlier Enercon facilities had a transmission train.

The hub with the rotor blades is gearless directly connected to the rotor of the ring generator direct drive.

The rotor unit rotates about a front and rear main bearing about a fixed axis bearings. Thus, the speed of the rotor is transmitted directly to the high-pole synchronous generator, wherein the rotor rotates in the stator inner rotordifferently. The Enercon generator is installed without permanent magnets, thus allowing the company to not rely on rare-earth metals.

However, grid losses accompany the provision of electrical excitation power.

Compared to transmission systems, both the speed of the rotating components and the mechanical load changes over the service life are lower. Depending on the wind speed, the speed is variable between RPM for the E and The large Enercon generators in turn lead to high tower head masses, constructive and logistical challenges.


The Enercon systems are visually easy to distinguish from the systems of other manufacturers. In Germany and many other countries, the tower carries coloured green rings above the foundation, which are getting brighter from bottom to top. On islands, the manufacturer alternatively offers a gradation in blue, as it was implemented on the island of Borkum.

The NCS grading is intended to better integrate the plant towers into the horizon. The rotor blades were the only ones on the market with blade tips similar to the winglets on aircraft, the technical term for this being ” Tips “. Inthe first E turbines successor of the E were installed at various sites throughout Germany and Belgium, including the Estinnes wind farm consisting of eleven E turbines in Belgium.

The E turbine was also upgraded and is available in 2, 2. Currently Enercon does not offer or supply wind turbines to offshore projects and has at times expressed skepticism about offshore wind parks.

Enercon was prohibited from exporting their wind turbines to the US until due to alleged infringement of U.

The ITC decided that the patent covered the technology in question and banned Enercon turbines from the US market until E at Ems EmdenEnercon’s only offshore wind turbine installed to date.
