Our History

SEEWIND Windenergiesysteme GmbH was founded in the pioneering years of the wind energy technology, back in 1991 by Mr. Gerd Seel, who is still the CEO of the company. In the early years, the company designed and constructed own SEEWIND wind energy turbines. In total 93 turbines were erected. SEEWIND is still servicing the productive existing fleet.

The first SEEWIND turbine was built in October 1990. In the timespan between 1993 and 2002, the number of 85 turbines type SEEWIND 20/110 and type 25/132 and 8 turbines type SEEWIND 52/750 were installed.

The global distribution of the SW 20/110 and SW 25/132 turbines was as follows: 37 in Germany, 7 in Austria, 7 in Poland, 4 in North Korea, 1 in South Korea, 2 in Turkey, 25 in Italy, 1 in Belarus, and 2 turbines were installed in France. Even today, up to 90 % of all SEEWIND turbines installed in the 1990s are still in operation.

From the year 2000 on, SEEWIND Windenergiesysteme GmbH began to reorganize away from investing more in R&D for the turbine itself and specialised in the planning, design and in the construction of foundations for wind turbines.

The first SEEWIND wind turbine from 1990 at the Walzbachtal site is still in operation.

Priority of the company is the struggle for efficiency

Agile and straightforward oriented teams bring the speed into the projects. Time planning and a well-structured program supports the efficiency and reduces the average length of stay on site.

Good machinery increases the working speed

The best selection of equipment satisfies our staff creates identification with the company. It favours the will to go for the last mile when the time is short.
