Wind has enormous power.
Wind energy has long made an important contribution to electricity generation from renewable sources. Wind sets the rotor blades of wind turbines in motion. This drives a generator and the electricity generated is fed into the grid.
Germany aims to generate 65% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030. Wind power is considered a promising energy source and plays a central role in energy policy.
In June 2013, the AVIA Group entered the electricity production business. Currently, 8 wind turbines with 20 megawatts of power provide electricity that is fed into the grid. Around 15,000 households can be supplied with renewable energy. The plants will save almost 36,000 tons of CO2.

OWT Offshore Wind Technology
In 2001, the shareholders of OWT recognized the developing market of the offshore wind industry very early and decided to focus their respective experience and competences. It turns out that the task of constructing suitable foundation structures for this purpose has been unsolved to date. This decided the development direction of the first years and the orientation as an engineering service provider. OWT became a pioneer for foundation structures and thus a recognized office of comprehensive topics around offshore wind.
Thus, OWT accompanied many German projects in their development and made energetic contributions at many points which underline the pioneer character: first design basis and preliminary drafts, one of the first offshore measuring masts, engineering for the first German test wind farm alpha ventus and the like. The next few years saw the construction of the Borkum and Global Tech I wind farms, which in turn were among the very first German wind farms.
Since 2015, OWT’s competences have been expanding towards mechanical engineering and especially shipbuilding tasks, in addition to civil engineering. Today, maritime services are offered and performed on a larger scale.
OWT benefits from almost 20 years of experience in many areas in and around wind energy offshore and onshore as well as marine operations, steel construction, classic design and much more and want to continuously develop further in these areas.

Stiftung Offshore Windenergie
The STIFTUNG OFFSHORE-WINDENERGIE was established in 2005 to promote environmental and climate protection through improved research and development of offshore wind energy. It has established itself as a non-partisan, supra-regional and independent institution to support OFFSHORE-WINDENERGY in Germany and Europe. The foundation is a communication platform for stakeholders from politics, industry and research, serves to exchange knowledge and sees itself as a provider of ideas. At the same time, it bundles the various interests and represents them vis-à-vis politics, the public, business and science.
The energy transition is the biggest challenge facing the Netherlands. In the future, we want to fundamentally change our energy supply. We are on the way to a sustainable energy supply. This means that we do not want to use fossil fuels in the future and therefore rely on renewable energy sources. Wind energy generated at sea (=offshore) is an essential building block for this.
In the climate agreement, it was agreed to make the Dutch energy supply more sustainable. This reduces CO2 emissions and combats climate change. Energy generated at sea plays an important role in this. To get the green power onshore, a power connection is needed from an offshore wind farm onshore.
