Keeping its commitment to quality workforce in Portugal, ENERCON will expand its presence in the country by opening an office in the city of Oporto - ENERCON Business Shared Service Center.
Reputable market leader, with 52 % of wind power installed in Portugal, ENERCON, a German wind turbine manufacturer, already employing around 1,500 people at its facilities in the Praia Norte and Lanheses Business Park, in the district of Viana do Castelo, and at various Service Stations throughout the country for the maintenance and support of various wind farms, has now added this new office in Oporto to its structure. Located in the Porto Office Park - POP building, in Boavista, one of the most cosmopolitan and central areas of the city, the new space will have the capacity for 150 qualified jobs and is scheduled to open in the beginning of Q2 of 2022.
With this new space, ENERCON seeks to diversify its locations and get closer to a more varied labour market, while also investing in greater proximity to its main customers, partnerships with University Campuses and various entities related to the development of projects in the field of Wind Energy.
Recruitment began during the summer of 2021 and it is expected that during 2022, a team comprising around 130 talents will be formed, mainly in the areas of Finance, Wind Farm Engineering, Research & Development, Global Procurement, IT, Logistics, Project Management, Sales and After-Sales.
Micha Strauss, Regional Head of ENERCON Region Southern Europe & Latin America (SELA), is optimistic. „ENERCON is one of the wind onshore pioneers and a market leader in Portugal, offering wind turbines produced in Portugal to the whole world for over 10 years. I am very proud of our team’s achievement and the decision to extend our engagement came very naturally and based on solid experiences. I look forward to welcoming new young talents to our team and thus achieving our ambitious goals."
With this new investment in Portugal, ENERCON is looking for the right profiles to maintain and develop its outstanding presence in the national and international market. The company wel-comes people who are motivated and inspired by the company’s motto: „Energy for the World".
