Our company

In general, the work is far from over with the handover of a turnkey wind farm. To ensure that your investment achieves long-term success, wind energy project management is needed to keep turbines performing at their technical and commercial best for decades to come.

UKB Umweltgerechte Kraftanlagen Betriebsführung GmbH offers its partners precisely this: technical and commercial operations management at the highest level. Boasting over 18 years of experience, UKB has established itself in the operators market and earned a strong reputation with its clients.

Experienced employees analyse the wind farms, operating companies and substations we serve, drawing on their extensive expertise to ensure perfection down to the last detail. Highly qualified engineers contribute the knowledge needed to optimise management of the facilities and avoid downtime. Experienced specialists in gearboxes, rotor blades and other important components carry out preventive checks and are permanently available to handle problems.

The operators of over 200 wind turbines are already benefiting from this expertise. They know that well-maintained and continually operational turbines guarantee the best possible yields. To ensure that this can be monitored at all times, UKB has established a transparent reporting system which is fed with all relevant operational data. This gives our customers 24/7 access to the latest performance data for their wind farms.

In addition to its own wealth of experience, UKB can also draw on the expertise of the UKA Group – of which it is a member. This enables operators who have invested in UKA projects to make a smooth transition to operational management. Operators who have acquired or managed their wind energy projects elsewhere can also benefit from the Group’s shared success.

Thorsten Wiegers

Managing Director
As Managing Director, my job is to set an example to my employees by embracing UKB’s philosophy and to implement it with them. In doing so, we hope to become the market leader among operating managers when it comes to customer satisfaction.

As Managing Director, Thorsten Wiegers has been responsible for UKB’s processes since the beginning of 2016. He boasts around 15 years of experience in the wind energy sector and is drawing on this to transform the company into a full-service provider for wind farm management. He began his career as an operator for a wind turbine project developer. This was followed by stints as a micrositing expert and due diligence consultant. He later became a technical expert and division manager for a multinational inspection and certification company, for which he developed and ran the wind sector segment as Business Unit Manager for Germany.
