WWEA President He Dexin: “We are very pleased to welcome FWT as our 600th member. The company represents very well the dynamic and international wind sector: Although it was founded only in 2013, its roots are going back more than 25 years and it is active on several continents. We look very much forward to working closely with FWT, together with all our members, in supporting the growth of the wind sector all over the world. WWEA is advising national governments and international organizations on wind deployment policies, and having such companies as our members makes our expertise even more based on practical experience and facts. The success of FWT demonstrates that still today new companies have great prospects on the wind market, given they follow the right strategies."
WWEA Secretary General Stefan Gsänger: “We cordially welcome FWT as new corporate member! This dynamic company fits perfectly to our broad existing network of national associations and companies from the different wind branches. We are especially proud that our members can equally be found in new and emerging wind markets, in particular in developing countries, but also in the well-established markets in Europe or Asia. We will continue to support our members from the different parts of the world to find new partners, to intensify international interaction and cooperation, and to jointly work for increasing the share of wind power and renewable energy in the global energy supply. FWT is a perfect partner for this!” 
About FWT energy GmbH:
The roots of the new player in windbusiness, FWT, are closely linked with Fuhrländer AG. After insolvency of Fuhrländer AG licensees and customers of Fuhrländer were concerned about the purchase and delivery of major components for turbines and production, since delivery by Fuhrländer was stopped. That was the start of FWT Trade, which was founded as trading company in order to deliver licensees (therefore the company name FWT Trade GmbH). In the meantime the scope of works offered by FWT trade comprises a wide range of solutions in purchase, logistics and trading with components. In February 2013, FWT started with service activities, customized service and maintenance of turbines (FWT Service). Finally the company started with the production of the first new wind turbine (FWT Production) in June 2013. The actual product family comprising wind turbines of the multi-megawatt-class of 2.0, 2.5 and 3 MW.

“Many offer service & maintenance – FWT goes one step further!” – According to this motto FWT  is placed on the wind power-market, while being located on the former company grounds of Fuhrländer AG in Waigandshain. In the field of maintenance, FWT Service offers everything desired by operators: rotor blade service, endoscopy of transmission gears, maintenance of inverters, tower inspection, provision of lifts and much more.

FWT is active in France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, India, USA, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Sweden, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Iran and China. Currently 22 turbines (FWT 2000) are being delivered for the first wind project in Kazachztan, a flagship project of Expo 2017 in Astana.

Wind Power as Primary Solution for Pakistan’s Power Crisis

Planning Minister: “Renewable Energy is Energy of People” which “no one can monopolize” 

Islamabad/Bonn, 23 June 2014 (WWEA) – At a conference “Scaling-up Wind Power Deployment for Pakistan's Sustainable Energy Future”, jointly organized by WWEA, Alternative Energy Development Board and Heinrich Böll Foundation Pakistan, 100 participants from government, business, academia and NGOs discussed how Pakistan can progress faster in wind power deployment in order to encounter its current energy crisis.

High-level speakers included Planning, Development and Reforms Minister Prof Ahsan Iqbal; Mr Asjad Imtiaz Ali, CEO of the Alternative Energy Development Board; Dr Miftah Ismail, CEO of the Board of Investment; Mr Werner Liepach, Country Director of the Asian Development Bank; Mr Peter Felten, Deputy Ambassador of Germany; Ms Saima Jasam, HBS Country Director; WWEA Honorary Vice President Air Marshall (rtd) Shahid Hamid and WWEA Secretary General Mr Stefan Gsänger.

All speakers highlighted the benefits of renewable energy in general and of wind power in particular, in order to encounter Pakistan’s current and severe power crisis. Especially wind power could contribute fast and at low cost to supply electricity to the national grid and to reduce the need of load shedding in the country which has currently a lack of 5'000 MW of electricity generation capacity. Wind power could also help to electrify thousands of villages in rural areas as a least-cost option.

In this context, the socioeconomic advantages of wind power were highlighted: Minister Ahsan Iqbal underlined that “renewable energy is energy of people” and offers especially huge benefits for local communities. He pointed out that “no corporate entity, no government can put monopoly on wind".
