Ranking Global dataSiemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) claimed the top spot for the wind turbine manufacturing sphere in 2017, managing to install 9.43GW and overtaking Vestas, which ranked second with 7.52GW of installations in 2017, according to GlobalData,.
SGRE gained ground with a 26.4% rise over the previous year’s installations, while Vestas saw a 14% fall in installations in the same period. Goldwind came in third, followed by General Electric, both dropping one place compared to last year, and Enercon was fifth. GlobalData’s research found that the top five turbine manufacturers accounted for nearly 58% of the total installed capacity in 2017, up almost 7% on the previous year. Vestas could not hold onto the top spot it attained last year against the synergies and vast geographic spread of SGRE. Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology took third place in the rankings. The company is the largest wind turbine generator manufacturer in China for the seventh consecutive year, while its global new installation market share reached 10.4% in 2017. Goldwind reported that it had accelerated innovation and actively expanded the overseas wind power market and offshore wind power market. The group made breakthroughs in six emerging markets, namely Uzbekistan, Turkey, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, Argentina, and Brazil.
