The WindEnergy Hamburg Conference and Fair was held on September 27-30 under the motto “It's time to put climate first" and attended by more than 1,400 exhibitors and 35,000 visitors from the international onshore and offshore wind power industries.
The Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Fatih Dönmez and Minister of Industry and Technology Mustafa Varank inaugurated the "Türkiye" pavilion that featured Turkish companies with the organization of the Turkish Wind Energy Association (TWEA) and contributions from the Investment Office.
During his opening speech at the pavilion, Minister Dönmez said Türkiye is Europe's fifth largest wind equipment manufacturer and market leader in blade and tower production, adding, “Today, Türkiye has become Europe's reliable partner and equipment supplier, not only in the natural gas supply security but also in the wind and other renewable energy fields."
Meanwhile, highlighting Türkiye's potential in wind power, generation capacity and investment climate, Minister Varank stated, “Today, Turkish companies manufacture and export turbine blades, components and towers to 45 countries. Türkiye stands out as a lucrative investment spot with its proximity to major markets, capacity, flexibility, and less shipping time."
This year, more than 30 companies from Türkiye attended the WindEnergy Hamburg Conference and Fair that enabled a unique platform for bringing government officials together with global wind industry planners, manufacturers, equipment suppliers, financiers and service providers.
