In 2016 Ormazabal connected over 5 GW of wind power all around the worldWind power is strategically applied in many countries as one of the most effective ways of implementing a more sustainable energy system. At the end of 2016, the global accumulated installation of wind power amounted to 487 GW, of which 54.6 GW were for new facilities completed over the course of the year. The global forecast for new wind facilities up to year 2020 is around 55 GW per year (Source: Global Wind Energy Council).
2016 has been a very positive year for the wind power sector, and in particular for Ormazabal. We have supplied medium-voltage solutions which represent more than 5 GW of installed power, providing a total of 32 GW all around the world since 1993, the equivalent to 7% of the global market share.
Our considerable experience dating back over more than 20 years in wind power projects, on more than 1300 wind farms, means we can satisfy all customers' needs thanks to a close collaboration backed up by permanent innovation and the efficient use of in-house technology, as well as a solid industrial base.
