Vattenfall has changed the setup of its Business Area Wind. The newly formed organisation started operations with effect from July 1. In the beginning of this year, Vattenfall decided to sharpen its wind activities towards a product line driven organisation. Three new BU’s will now build Vattenfalls Business Area Wind which is operating in six European countries: Sweden, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and France.
The Business Area Wind will now operate with three Business Units (BU’s); Offshore, Onshore and for the first time Photovoltaic & Battery. The Business Units will cover the entire value chain of their respective business and will operate in a very agile and market specific approach. The company currently operates more than 1,100 wind turbines in five markets with a total installed capacity of 2,500MW. By 2020, Vattenfall will extend its wind capacity on land and at sea to 4,000MW. In the period 2016 – 2020 the company is investing € 5,5 billion to ensure this.
