Husum Wind 2019: New concept for the fair

Following WindEnergy Hamburg, the industry is now looking expectantly towards Husum, where Husum Wind, the leading national wind trade fair will be held from 10 to 13 September 2019.

2019 represents a turning point in that the following year marks the end of the EEG subsidies for the first wind turbines, and also in that the industry is expecting an improved market situation once again that will start in 2020. When the who’s who of the industry come together in Germany’s model region for wind power, they will be comparing notes on current trends and solutions for the energy transition, while the agenda will also include discussion of the political environment.

Husum Wind, which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2019, has always been closely oriented on developments in the industry and tackles topics that are of particular importance to the German market. These include future post-EEG solutions such as continued use, repowering or dismantling and recycling of wind turbines. Leading suppliers from these sectors will be presenting their innovative concepts and services for the phase after 2020. “We will however still be providing a platform for such subjects as Power-to-X, energy storage, digitalisation and big data. In the model region, today it is already possible to see the potential of the tomorrow’s wind power. In Husum the buses will soon be running on regionally generated hydrogen while research continues into additional alternative utilisation concepts”, says Arne Petersen, managing director of Messe Husum & Congress GmbH. “Here in Husum we think about the future of wind.”


The signals that Husum Wind is sending to the market are encountering positive responses. In the meantime about 90% of the exhibition space is sold out. Next September all the OEMs and market leaders from Germany and the neighbouring EU countries will once again be represented in Husum. The exhibition programme once again includes the forum for young, innovative enterprises and the Windcareer job fair for skilled personnel and industry entrants.


From 10 to 13 September 2019 the who’s who of the wind industry will be coming together at HUSUM Wind, the most important German wind trade fair of the year. 650 exhibitors from Germany and neighbouring markets will be in Germany’s leading model region to showcase the latest trends, newest products and innovative services. Additional topics of the future include hydrogen and Power-to-X, post-EEG solutions for wind turbines, digitalisation & big data. The approximately 18,000 trade visitors can expect an interesting exhibition and congress programme that reflects practical orientation, new information and dialogue formats and the unique HUSUM-Spirit.

Damen Shipyards has awarded SMST a contract for the delivery of an Access & Cargo Tower and 3D Motion Compensated Crane for the new build Service Operation Vessel (SOV) of Bibby Marine Services. The SMST equipment helps Bibby to safely transfer their maintenance personnel and cargo from their Damen-built SOV to the offshore wind turbines. The vessel, sister ship to the Bibby WaveMaster1, will operate for EnBW and Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy in the offshore wind farms Hohe See and Albatros.

Siemens Gamesa has been able to transfer its new logistics concept, announced in 2015 into reality. By using a Ro/Ro solution the company expects to save about 20 % in costs and increase safety at the same time.

Only one year after the successful commissioning of Taiwan’s pioneering Formosa 1 Phase 1 offshore wind power plant, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has been contracted to supply an additional 120 MW of capacity for Formosa 1 Phase 2. The contracts signed today are subject to the joint venture’s final investment decision and financial close, which are expected later this year. In addition to the turbine supply agreement, a 15-year Full service agreement is also signed and includes the provision of spare parts and tools to help ensure the reliability and optimal performance of the turbines. The installation of the 20 SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines will start in 2019. They will expand the total capacity of Formosa 1 wind power plant to 128 MW.

Based on a thorough review of the latest project data, Westwood forecasts over 15,300 turbines to be installed over the 2018-2027 period with a total global cumulative capacity to reach just under 113 GW by 2027, inclusive of projects at the concept and speculative stages of development.
