Availon says its portfolio of wind turbines under maintenance has reached the 2 GW milestone since its foundation in 2007. The company notes much of the over-2 GW output is made of GE 1.5 and Vestas V80/V90 wind turbines, as well as turbines from Gamesa.

In addition to focusing on its core market of Germany, Availon says it is steadily expanding its position in the U.S., Italy, Spain and Poland. In fact, the company added 134 wind turbines to its portfolio in the U.S. and 105 in the Italian wind market last year.

The company’s Markus Spitzer comments, "We expect to experience continued growth in the near future, especially considering that the [operations and maintenance] market for turbines will increase from $3 billion in 2008 to $19 billion by 2020. In the United States alone, 73 percent of operating wind farms will come out of their warranty period within the next three years. Availon intends to be a major player in this rapidly growing market.”
