Ingeteam, an independent global supplier of electrical conversion equipment, has achieved a new record year for the deliveries of its wind-power converters worldwide.
With nearly 5 GW of new capacity added in 2016 alone, a total of 36,414 MW of wind turbines have been equipped with Ingeteam’s technology since 1995, making the Spanish company the world’s No. 1 supplier of wind-power converters.
Ingeteam’s record performance was particularly impressive in large emerging wind markets, despite intense competition.

According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) of India, the country’s total wind-power capacity has reached more than 28 GW, with an additional 3,612 MW installed in 2016 alone.
Ingeteam ended 2016 with more than 35 percent of the wind-power capacity installed in the country that year. To date, 9 percent of all wind-power capacity in India is equipped with Ingeteam’s technology.
By December 2016, more than 10,740 MW was being generated by wind farms in Brazil, according to data from GWEC.
In 2016, installed capacity has increased by an additional 2,014 MW, which represents a 41 percent market share for Ingeteam for that year and 23 percent of the total market to date.
