Producers, suppliers, wind farm developers, logistics companies and other service providers have established themselves in Bremerhaven and the north-west region, covering the entire value chain of the wind energy industry – from production to installation and maintenance of these high-tech installations, which consist of more than 6,000 components.

A dense network of suppliers, operators and specialist service providers has developed around them, providing close links and wide-ranging synergies.

These create partnerships and foster cooperation, and close proximity to renowned research institutes in the area promotes the transfer of expertise and helps to prepare the next generation of skilled workers.
