10 years of e.n.o. energy - A corporate success story
e.n.o energy’s managing director, Karsten Porm, can look back on 10 eventful years. He founded the company in 1999 as “Energiegesellschaft Nordost”, shortened e.n.o., and the origin of company’s current name. The abbreviation has, however, since lost its meaning following a change of company name.
While the company’s business activities were initially in the planning, financing and construction sectors as well as the operation and marketing of wind parks from 2007 onwards preparations began for in-house manufacturing of wind turbines. To achieve this goal additional investment was, however, required. Due to its better infrastructure the only new location to come under serious consideration was Rostock with its harbour and motorway connections.
As a first step in the Stadthafen harbour the grain silo was purchased and office space for the construction department was set up. In addition to this Karsten Porm purchased for the construction of production facilities. Rostock Business provided e.n.o. energy with exemplary support during the search for a suitable location.
In March 2008 the prototype of the company’s first wind turbine, the e.n.o. 82 – 2.0 MW, was erected. Engineers are currently working flat out on the development of the e.n.o. 92 with 2.2 MW capacity. Erection of the prototype is scheduled for spring 2010.
The management, workforce and business partners can rightly be proud of their achievements. Many years of experience, know-how and hard work are the guarantors for this success. Our common goal for the future should be the promotion of the use of renewable energy, thus making a contribution to protecting the environment.
