Spanish service company GPS to trade under Deutsche Windtechnik brand
Bremen/Ostenfeld/Zaragoza - On 1st March 2016, Deutsche Windtechnik, the leading wind turbine service provider, is rebranding the company name of its Spanish subsidiary GPS (General Power Services S.L.) to Deutsche Windtechnik S.L. The name change reflects and emphasises our strategic approach to offer European services from a single source. The company has been a 100% part of the Group since November 2014. The corporate structure is unaffected by the rebranding: Managing Director Javier Mozo Herrera continues to lead the 86-strong company from headquarters in Zaragoza, Spain.
Wide range of services for southwestern Europe
\"The new name makes the Deutsche Windtechnik brand recognisable not just in Spain but right across southern Europe. We will now be seen as being Deutsche Windtechnik, offering the entire range of Group services,\" says Javier Mozo Herrera, Managing Director of Deutsche Windtechnik S.L. \"This relationship provides us with unlimited access to expertise, economic potential, procurement conditions, remote monitoring, SCADA, contract management and the marketing power of the entire Deutsche Windtechnik Group. Through the close collaboration with our German companies we can now also offer comprehensive service for wind turbine generators from Siemens®, Nordex® and Senvion®.\" The Spanish subsidiary benefits from the strength of the company group: \"In the field of condition-based expert report, we bring new skills and experience. This is particularly useful when dealing with warranty expirations or when an existing service contract runs out,\" says Javier Mozo Herrera.
Currently, over 500 wind turbines (WTG) from NEG Micon ®, Vestas ® and MADE ® are supervised by the company, which has been active on the market since 2009. The service specialists from Spain are already active in Romania, Belgium, Morocco, Portugal, Turkey, Ethiopia, USA and Bulgaria with individual orders. To enhance its portfolio of turbine types and to develop new markets, a service portfolio for Gamesa wind turbines is currently being tested.
Objectives and tasks for 2016
For the current year, the Spanish unit has set major goals: it expects growth to come from gaining additional wind farms. The entry into at least one other southern European market should support this course. “We have a highly qualified team in Spain, very good market conditions and a similar market structure to that of other southern European countries.” says Melf Lorenzen, Country Manager of Deutsche Windtechnik Service GmbH and Co. KG, explaining the entry into new markets. An additional, central site in Madrid to coordinate overseas projects and offer customers better availability is in the planning stages.
