Towards the end of 2017 the news regarding Enercon making an acquisition of Dutch turbine OEM Lagerwey indicated a wind market that is still in the process of consolidating. The outcome of this deal will have specific benefits for Enercon as it positions itself for the next ten years and attempt to re-grow its market share and assert its global presence.

Markets have been shifting away from subsidies and towards competitive tenders/auctions in the past few years. This switch favours scaleable wind turbine technology and a modular platform architecture.
