Husum – Denmark’s foreign minister, Kristian Jensen, is visiting HUSUM Wind today. Besides attending a reception at the Danish pavilion, he will also be visiting a number of other exhibitors. All in all there are exhibitors from 25 countries at the fair. In addition to Denmark there are a number of exhibitors from two other neighbouring countries with growing wind industries, Poland and the Netherlands. This also reflects the importance of the German market for foreign businesses.
17.09.2015 // As well as foreign minister Jensen, today the fair is also welcoming Ina-Maria Ulbrich, secretary of state in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomeranian Ministry for Energy, Infrastructure and State Development, as well as a delegation from Central Asia.
On this third day of the fair, visitors can expect an ambitious congress programme dealing with current and innovative topics. The German Wind Energy Association is holding a press conference about the much-discussed “Tendering for Wind on Land“. In the foyer of the des NordseeCongressCentrum (NCC) there is a forum dealing with the future role of wind energy in not just the electricity sector, but also in the areas of heating and mobility. HUSUM Wind is also the meeting place for numerous networks and associations. Women of Wind Energy Deutschland, an association that campaigns for a more attractive work field, better career and career-start opportunities for women in the wind industry, uses the fair for a network gathering and its annual general meeting.
The penultimate day closes with the exhibitors’ evening and the Strandkorb Party in the NordseeCongressCentrum, where you can network in a relaxed atmosphere, with live music and traditional HUSUM Wind Beer. Outside the fairground there is an excursion to the Reussenköge communal wind farm, a coastal district with a long wind tradition, and to GP Joule, the enterprise that operates Schleswig-Holstein’s first power-to-gas storage system.
Tomorrow, the final day of the fair, also holds a special highlight. The Windcareer job fair in the NordseeCongressCentrum takes place from 10:00 to 18:00, offering visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to find out about each other. The fair about everything to do with jobs, training, retraining and advanced training in the wind industry, offers everyone, from school pupils to skilled professionals, the chance to meet major industry players like Enercon, Nordex, UKA, Ferchau and Deutsche Windtechnik AG, to find out about the types of work are available in the wind industry. You can get your questions answered in direct conversation with company personnel managers, managers and other experts. Windcareer’s main objective is to find jobs for skilled workers. Finding new employees for a wind industry that is continuing to grow – and already provides around 140,000 jobs – is a major challenge facing wind enterprises today.
