Availon Marks 2 GW Turbine Service Milestone


Availon recently announced that its portfolio of wind turbines-under-maintenance has reached the 2 GW milestone since its foundation in 2007.

Availon has experienced steady growth and currently employs a workforce of around 300 employees. In addition to focusing on its core market of Germany, the company is also steadily expanding its global strategic position in the U.S., Italy, Spain, and Poland.

 In 2013, Availon added 134 wind turbines to its portfolio in the U.S. and 105 in the Italian wind market. Much of the over 2 GW output is made of GE 1.5 and Vestas V80/V90 wind turbines as well as wind turbines from Gamesa.

 “Over the last six years, we have successfully built up a great deal of expertise regarding the system types we operate and want to consistently expand upon this to our customers’ benefit,” Availon joint Managing Director Ulrich Schomakers said. “We regard the fact that we provide full maintenance for almost 40 percent of the 2 GW portfolio as confirmation that we have chosen the right path.”

 Availon GmbH is the first independent wind turbine service provider which has been fully certified by Germanischer Lloyd for all processes required for service provision. Its proactive, all-inclusive service for wind turbines covers the entire operational value creation chain, ranging from remote monitoring, maintenance and spare part supply through to troubleshooting and turbine optimization.
