Ingeteam, an independent global supplier of electrical conversion equipment, has announced that it 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 number one supplier of wind power converters.
Ingeteam’s record performance was particularly impressive in large emerging wind markets, despite intense competition. Deliveries to India and Brazil reached a peak volume of 1,268 MW and 837 MW, respectively, in 2016.
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 per cent of the wind power capacity installed in the country that year. To date, 9 per cent of all windpower capacity in India is equipped with Ingeteam’s technology.
“We will strive to continue to provide our clients with our market leading technology. Our goal, going forward, is to offer ever-increasing performance, lifetime and reliability, with a focus on permanent innovation,” said Ana Goyen, Managing Director of Ingeteam’s Wind Business Unit.
