A preview of the global on- and offshore expo
WindEnergy Hamburg, a new international fair for the wind industry, will be held in Germany’s second biggest city this autumn. From 23 to 26 September, the Hamburg Fair site will be the meeting point for energy industry experts from all parts of the world. WindEnergy Hamburg will give this global industry the ideal platform for dialogue and presentation of its recent innovations, new technologies and services. It covers the whole of the supply chain, both onshore and offshore. More than 1,000 exhibitors from all over the world are expected at the fair, presenting their products in 65,000 m² of exhibition space.
Exhibitors from All Stages of the Supply Chain
WindEnergy Hamburg is a showcase for all companies active in the international wind power industry for both current and emerging national markets. The great international interest is shown by the presence of global equipment manufacturers such as Alstom, Daewoo, Enercon, Gamesa, GE, Nordex, Senvion, Siemens, Vensys, Vestas and others. Many of these companies have an office in Hamburg from where they manage major projects. Companies from all relevant market segments will showcase their products and services at this fair, which is entirely focused on the specific interests of the wind energy sector; everybody from planners, manufacturers and equipment suppliers to financial service providers, operators, energy supply companies, and service providers. Small and medium-sized enterprises from all parts of the value chain will also be exhibiting in Hamburg. On WindEnergy Hamburg's Recruiting Day on Friday 26 September everything will revolve around jobs, career planning and professional training opportunities in the wind power industry.
Companies from over 30 Countries
Altogether the companies, institutions and industry associations exhibiting in Hamburg come from more than 30 countries. There will be more than 15 national pavilions, each of them bringing together wind energy companies from a specific country for shared activities to provide information on their product portfolio. They include presentations from European countries from Denmark to Turkey. Representatives from wind energy markets outside Europe will include Canada and the USA, Argentina, Japan, Korea, Bangladesh and China. In addition, visitor delegations from countries such as Brazil, Japan and China will benefit from the extensive information and international networking opportunities at the expo.
WindEnergy Hamburg is timed to generate synergies with SMM Hamburg (the maritime industry fair) and H2Expo. This grouping of fairs will help wind industry experts to make additional contacts in new fields of business. Many companies in the shipbuilding industry exhibiting at SMM Hamburg from 9 to 12 September will also be present at WindEnergy Hamburg. They include shipyards, ports, logistics and the maritime equipment industry. In parallel with WindEnergy Hamburg, H2Expo will also show approaches for integrating renewables into the energy market, with solutions in areas such as storage and mobility. A ’Storage Tour‘ will guide visitors explicitly to exhibitors from all industry segments who address the issue of energy storage. Some of them are wind energy companies offering solutions or components for storing wind energy.
WindEnergy Hamburg will be open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. It will occupy Halls A1 and B1 through to B7 of the Hamburg Messe fair site located in the heart of the metropolis.
